Jacory Harris Throws 6 TD Passes In One Game
He's the starting quarterback of the nation's best high school football team. So setting standards of excellence has been nothing new for Northwestern High's Jacory Harris. Harris continues to rack up records and victories like no other QB in Miami-Dade County history. Last night, the 6-foot-4, 170 pound senior threw six touchdown passes to five different receivers in Northwestern's 63-0 victory over Hialeah-Miami Lakes.
Harris, who has verbally committed to the University of Miami, now has 23 touchdowns on the season and is on pace for 58, which would break the record of 48 set by former Tampa Plant High standout Robert Marve, who now plays for UM. His 6 touchdown passes last night is a Dade County record. The state record is held by Orlando Colonial's Mike Mitchell who threw 8 in one game. Current University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow once threw 7 touchdown passes while playing for Ponte Vedra Nease High School.
