Sam Durley broke the NCAA passing yards record
Sam Durley is a QB at Eureka College, a Division III School in Illinois. He is also now a NCAA record holder as he threw for over 700 yards in tonight’s 62-55 victory over Knox.
Durley threw for 736 yards and five touchdowns on 34-of-52 attempts, beating the NCAA record by five yards, a feat accomplished by Zamir Amin of Menlo College in 2000. Two of Durley’s receivers had well over 200 yards receiving. The record yardage was broken as Durley threw a game winning touchdown pass with just 20 seconds remaining in the game.
After the game when told he was now an NCAA Record Holder, Durley said he had not idea the number was that high.
“I thought maybe high 300s,” Durley said. “We were so focused on driving down the field and getting the win. They told me afterward and I was pretty speechless. It’s definitely something that’s pretty cool.”
The Red Devils offense finished with 821 yards of offense, a school record.
Congratulations to Sam Durley on such an accomplishment!
