To Myles Brennan there is only one thing that is missing on his long list of accomplishments.
A state championship.
“I could break all the passing records in the world, but I am trying to help my team win a state championship,” he said. “We’ve been there the last two years and have come short against Noxubee County both times and that is what we’re striving for this year. Winning a state championship.”
To say the four-star St. Stanislaus quarterback and LSU commit is putting up video game like numbers is a under statement.
Brennan has snapped Mississippi’s all-time passing career record with 13,746 yards and career touchdowns passes with 152.
Both of those records were held by former St. Stanislaus quarterback Dylan Favre (12,559 yards passing and 141 touchdowns). Favre was a part of the Rock-a-chaws lone state title team in 2009.
“I can’t break all this records without my teammates, so it’s a big accomplishment for me as well for the team,” he said. “This is a team accomplishment. Back in my sophomore season I broke the single season record for passing yards and touchdowns and I couldn’t do that without my teammates.”
He broke the passing yards record earlier in the year in a win over D’Iberville and broke the career passing touchdown record this past Friday night in a win over East Central.
This season Brennan has completed 192 of 269 passes for 2,707 yards with 34 touchdowns and has yet to throw an interception.
“One thing with Myles throughout the off season is being efficient,” St. Stanislaus coach Bill Conides said. “Being efficient with reads and production as far as getting the ball down the field.”
He’s got a stellar core of receivers to throw too. His leading receiver is Cole Blanchard, whi has 793 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. Tight end and Tennessee commit Chase Rogers has caught 43 passes for 717 yards with nine touchdowns. Wide receiver and Western Kentucky commit Darius Pittman has 513 yards receiving with eight touchdowns.
“One thing we stressed about over the off season is not only being efficient, but process the information fast enough,” Conides said. “Once he committed to LSU we’ve been training him as if he was trying to beat Alabama, Ole Miss or any other team in the SEC.”
Conides always knew Brennan had potential it just only took a matter of time that the outside people to come see him throw.
It all started back in March at a regional quarterback camp in New Orleans. Brennan competed very well with others from around the Southeastern states, Trent Dilfer offered him on the spot an invite to come to a national quarterbacks camp in Los Angeles in June.
“The national camp was like an example of how its going to be in college,” Brennan said. “It was a Friday, Saturday, Sunday camp. We’d wake up at 5 in the morning and go have meetings and work out all day and then go to bed at midnight.”
On that Sunday at the end of camp, Brennan got the call that he had been invited to Elite Eleven camp in Oregon, which is a is a four-day event which brings together the top high school quarterbacks and focuses on improving their quarterbacking play both on and off the field.
“That whole experience was a experience of a life time for me,” Brennan said. “To go out with the best of the best and play in 7 on 7 tournaments and do what I love to do play football and compete at one hundred percent. It was just awesome.”
Two weeks ago he got honored to play quarterback for Mississippi in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star Game that’ll be played on Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Ala. Last week, he received his journey to play in the Under Armour All-American game.
“It is a huge honor to play in both of those games,” he said. “That is something you dream about and you can see on TV. Go out and represent your state and play well against the best of the best.”
But right now, there is one thing on Brennan’s mind. Winning St. Stanislaus its second state title in school history.
“We got seven weeks left in the season and God willing I hope we’re one those two teams playing for the Class 4A state championship at Mississippi State on Saturday, Dec. 3rd,” he said. “We got to go out and get better each and every day and then execute on Friday night and hopefully we can get the job done.”
