Future UW quarterback Jake Browning breaks national prep record with 220 career touchdown passes

Jake Browning

What seemed inevitable has, in fact, become reality.

Folsom (Calif.) High quarterback Jake Browning broke the national prep record Saturday night with the 220th touchdown pass of his high school career.

Browning, who signed a financial-aid agreement with the Huskies in September and is on track to enroll at UW next month, threw six touchdown passes Saturday night to lead Folsom to a 55-7 victory over Tracy in the Division I Sac-Joaquin Section championship game.

“I don’t think about it,” Browning told me when I asked him about the record chase in October. “Someone might tell me afterward and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, that’s kind of cool.’ But then you move on. If we broke a rushing record and were still undefeated, then I’d be just as happy. Because we’re winning.”

Browning has 82 touchdown passes this season against four interceptions. Earlier this week, he was named the California Gatorade Player of the Year for the second year in a row. As a junior, Browning threw 75 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. As a sophomore, he had 63 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Browning broke the national touchdown record of 219 held by Maty Mauk, currently the starting quarterback at Missouri.
