Sam Huard Becomes Washington's All-Time High School Passing Yards Leader
Sam Huard, the son of former NFL quarterback Damon Huard, is now Washington’s all-time leader in high school passing yardage.
The Kennedy Catholic (Burien, WA) senior closed out his scholastic career with 514 yards and eight touchdowns in 60-17 win over Kentwood.
That gaudy total moved Huard past current Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien as the state's all-time leader in high school passing yardage.
In just 35 high school games, Huard threw for 13,226 career yards. He finished his high school career with 847 completions in 1,356 attempts with 153 touchdowns.
Huard surprised many when he decided to play his senior season this spring after the state of Washington moved the fall 2020 season to the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic. Huard, a 5-star college football prospect, will now head to the University of Washington, where his father and uncle, Brock, were star quarterbacks in the '90s.
Damon Huard left UW as the school’s all-time leader in passing yardage. He signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 1996. In addition to the Bengals, Damon also played with the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers during his 13-year professional career.
Sam’s uncle Brock was drafted in the third round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. In his five-year pro career, he had two stints with the Seahawks and backed up Peyton Manning with the Indianapolis Colts for two seasons.
