Friday night, Whittier Christian (La Habra, Calif.) quarterback Quinn Commans tossed for nine touchdowns to tie a CIF-Southern Section record in a 68-55 win over Bell, as we told you over the weekend.
Surely, there were those in attendance who channeled Ed Rooney in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
As it turns out he wasn’t the only one tying records in Southern California that night while finding the end zone “niiine times.”
Not to be outdone, Bishop Mora Salisian (Los Angeles) quarterback Robbie Blosser threw for nine TDs of his own, his coming in a 71-0 shellacking of Huntington Park. Like Commans, Blosser tied Robert De La Cruz of Cathedral (Los Angeles). De La Cruz performed the feat twice, once in ’98 and once in ’99. On Friday, Blosser was 16-for-20 for 304 yards to go with those nine scores, according to the Los Angeles Times.
According to 247sports.com, Blosser threw for just 13 TDs a year ago after tossing 24 as a sophomore in 2014. Like Commans, Blosser already has thrown 20 TDs in four contests.
Blosser was also trained this summer by Lavelle Durant, one of the founders of the QB Flight School.
A sleeper no more, it would appear. Finding the end zone “niiine times” can have that effect.
