EDIT: It appears the Cal-Hi Sports numbers were actually a little off for Nottingham. He actually had 3,962 yards last year — his 144 yards in his final game against De La Salle in the NCS semis were not added in to Cal-Hi’s numbers. So Lloyd is actually 91 yards shy of the East Bay record right now.
In working on a preview for tomorrow’s NCS Division II semifinal game between Concord-Casa Grande, I learned that Minutemen QB Ricky Lloyd now holds the East Bay single season passing record. Lloyd threw for 305 yards in Concord’s 46-20 win over Maria Carrillo last week, bringing his season total to 3,871 yards. Monte Vista quarterback Brett Nottingham, who’s now at Stanford, set the record last season with 3,818 yards.
Lloyd actually has a good chance to set the NorCal record should the Minutemen make it to the NCS championship game or with a monster performance tomorrow. Jamie Jensen of Gilroy set the record of 4,323 in 2007. Lloyd needs 453 yards to set a new record, and is averaging 322.6 per game. His season-high of 439 yards came in a 50-14 win over Clayton Valley.
The East Bay and NorCal passing records were confirmed with Cal-Hi Sports’ Mark Tennis.
