Wausau— With the current incarnation of 8-Player Football still being very young, there were a significant number of additions to the Record Book this season.
Newman Catholic’s Ben Bates etched his name in several places, including as the top single-season passer in 8-Player history, throwing for 3,040 yards. He’s also second in passing touchdowns with 40.
Gibraltar quarterback Trevor Reinhardt became the new career passing yardage record-holder with 4,916. Bates is likely to break that next year, as he’s only 116 yards behind, and Bates also has the record for career touchdown passes with 67.
Siren’s Derek Highstrom set a new 8-player record with 14 receptions in a game and six receiving touchdowns in a game.
Elliot Samuels of Newman Catholic became the new record-holder for receptions in a season with 80, while Port Edwards’ Addison Gibbs now holds single-season records for receiving yards (1,585) and touchdowns (19).
