You’ve heard it before, records are meant to be broken.
That’s exactly what Roncalli Catholivc High School has done. The Crimson Pride have broken two Class B state records this year
“You never go into a season looking to break records," Roncalli head coach Tom Kassing said. "You never go into a game looking to break records.”
The first record was set September 28 against Mount Michael Benedictine when quarterback Jack Dotzler threw for seven passing touchdowns in a game.
"I've played quarterback and have never thrown more than four touchdowns in a game, so to get seven was awesome," Dotzler said.
The previous record was six and it was set in 1965.
On October 5, Roncalli broke another record for most points in a game with 79. The previous record was 76, which they tied by halftime.
That record was set in 2001 by Roncalli Catholic High School. They were coached back then by Mike Berens, who is now an assistant on the team.
Roncalli scored on offense, defense and special teams in that performance. The coaching staff was proud that the whole team truly contributed to all 79 points. That includes the bench players that don't get much playing time during the regular season.
Sitting at 6-2 after a 2-1 start, the Crimson Pride look to stay on fire as the Class B state playoffs near. Since the team's last loss, they have averaged 62 points per game, which is a big reason why they are on this winning streak.
