The North Star Cougars can now lay claim to District 5’s first ever career 4,000-yard passer.
With a 236-yard, three-touchdown effort in the Cougars’ 46-0 victory over Shade Friday evening, quarterback Max Strasiser surpassed the 4,000-yard mark for career passing yardage, a level never before attained by any District 5 field general.
The Cougar senior, who has now thrown for 1,001 yards and eight touchdowns on the season, sits perched at 4,126 career passing yards. Strasiser threw for 1,115 yards as a sophomore and 2,010 yards as a junior. He also has thrown 36 career touchdown passes.
Strasiser is one of 226 quarterbacks to throw for 4,000 or more yards in his career, and, at his current pace, could finish with more than 5,000 career passing yards, a mark reached by 98 other field generals in state history.
The defending District 5 Class A champion, North Star is off to a 4-0 start in 2011 and has won 13 of its last 17 games. The Cougars have won three D5 championships in the last four seasons, two in Class A and one in AA.
