Latest new, updated list of all-time bests for a single season from the exclusive Cal-Hi Sports state record book is topped by a new record holder from the 2011 season. Heisman Trophy favorite Matt Barkley of USC along with several other likely college starters – like Brett Nottingham at Stanford and Joe Southwick at Boise State – also are included.

California’s first 5,000-yard passer eclipsed the previous state record for most yards in a season on a state record-tying 99-yard touchdown pass in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division II championship. Tanner Trosin couldn’t do enough, however, to prevent his team at Folsom from losing in that game to Vacaville. Still, his final season total of 5,185 yards easily surpassed the earlier record of 4,907 established in 1999 by David Koral from Palisades of Pacific Palisades.

Here are the updated all-time leaders from the state record book heading into the 2012 season now with nearly 200 listings:
