Knights Qb Throws For Record Yardage

November 15, 1990

After a statistical review, North County quarterback Johnny Ray has finished the season as the metro area's leading passer and has set a state record with 2,020 yards.

In Tuesday's high school statistics section of The Sun, Diarra Davis of Southwestern in Baltimore, who started his final game with 1,797 yards, was credited with 2,083 yards.

But Southwestern coach Fred Kaiss rechecked his stats and discovered that Davis did not throw for 286 yards as originally thought in a 45-6 loss to Severn last Saturday. Instead, Kaiss, who admits to mistakingly including pass interference yardage in Davis' total, says Davis threw for 206 yards, which brought his season total to 2,003 yards.

Ray, who was the first to pass previous record-holder Dave Mikush of 1980 Gilman (1,880 yards), is now the all-time single-season record-holder despite throwing for only 25 yards in his final game.

The senior quarterback in the Chuck Markiewicz run-and-shoot offense led the Knights to an 8-2 record in their first season.
