Crespi quarterback Kenny Stenhouse has set a school record for passing yards twice this season.

Crespi quarterback Kenny Stenhouse has broken his school record for passing twice in three weeks. The first time he broke the school record, in a 33-32 win over Clovis West, three other high school quarterbacks set school marks for passing. It’s rare enough to see one school passing record fall. To see four in one night is something that probably won’t happen again for some time to come.

On Sept. 16, R.J. Gordon from Campbell Hall, Jake Geringer from Newbury Park, Mike Bercovici from Woodland Hills Taft and Stenhouse set school marks for passing.

Stenhouse threw for 424 yards and three touchdowns against Clovis West, breaking the mark of 388 yards set by Brian Bennett in 2007. Stenhouse also set the school record for completions in a game with 33.

“We needed every single yard, every inch, every completion,” Crespi coach Jon Mack said. “These are the kind of records that mean something.”

Crespi and Clovis West were tied after three quarters, 27-27. Crespi needed a defensive stand at the end to win the game. Stenhouse recalls the play of his teammates, especially on defense, more than his own passing performance against Clovis West.

“The offensive line has been growing as a team and the receivers came down with some big catches,” Stenhouse said. “Our defense took care of them. They did a good job at the end of the game.”
