Erwin senior C.J. Thompson.

It could be a while before anyone “catches” this record.

Erwin senior C.J. Thompson’s 364 receiving yards in Friday’s 69-55 loss at Ooltewah (Tenn.) is a NCHSAA record. The former single-game record was 360 yards and had stood for three years.

The following is a direct excerpt from the state association’s record book:

360, Dakwon Freeman (Currituck) vs. Hertford County, November 8, 2013 (Currituck 27-21)
357, Malcolm Vaught (West Bladen) vs. Terry Sanford, October 26, 2012 (Terry Sanford 44-20)
336, Chris Noble (North Davidson) vs. Davie, November 8, 2002 (Davie 26-24)
301, C.J. Thompson (South Mecklenburg vs. Myers Park, October 12, 2012 19 receptions in 41-33 loss)
300, Cameron Dollar (East Lincoln vs. Christ the King, August 26, 2016; 9 receptions, 7 TD in 69-0 win)
279, Reggie Williams (Greenville Rose) vs. Bertie, 2000
275, Michael Schmidt (Hendersonville) vs. Mountain Heritage on September 26, 2014

Fellow senior Damien Ferguson was 50-for-84 for 665 yards and six touchdowns with one interception in that same game. Ferguson’s attempts are a NCHSAA single-game record:

66, Connor Mitch (Wakefield) vs. Leesville Road (58-67), September 29, 2011
65, Daniel Evans (Raleigh Broughton) vs. Raleigh Millbrook, November 9, 2001 (Millbrook 24-14)
64, Luke Samples (East Wilkes) vs. East Surry, November 5, 1998 (East Surry 52-38)
62, Drew Davis (East Chapel Hill) vs. Southern Durham, October 14, 2011 (Southern 71-27)
62, Connor Mitch (Wakefield) vs. Garner, November 9, 2012 (Garner 76-34)
60, Drew Davis (East Chapel Hill) vs. Carrboro, September 9, 2011 (Carrboro 44-25)

And so are his completions:

43, Drew Davis (East Chapel Hill) vs. Carrboro on September 9, 2011 (Carrboro 44-25)
42, Drew Davis (East Chapel Hill) vs. Southern Durham, October 14, 2011 (Southern 71-27)
40, Ray Stanifer (Porter Ridge) vs. Concord on September 29, 2008 (Concord 28-24)
39, Zack Wilcox (West Bladen) vs. Terry Sanford on October 26, 2012 (Terry Sanford 44-20)
38, Connor Mitch (Wakefield) vs. Leesville Road on September 29, 2011 (Leesville 67-58)
NCHSAA STATE FOOTBALL RECORDS 12 8/30/2016
38, Chad Vick (Leesville Road) vs. Panther Creek on August 28, 2015 (Leesville Road 54-48)
37, Connor Mitch (Wakefield) vs. Broughton (70-42), October 19, 2012
37, Drew Davis (East Chapel Hill) vs. Jordan on September 16, 2011 (East Chapel Hill 62-49)
36, Dom Samson (Panther Creek) vs. Apex, October 23, 2015 (Apex 55-52)
35, Nick DeMuro (Athens Drive) vs. Fuquay-Varina on October 5, 2007 (Athens 49-21)

Ferguson’s yardage is the second-most in state history behind Wakefield’s Connor Mitch, who threw for 667 in a 2012 game.
