Forget Records, Brennan Wants Title
Football is a game of inches. Sometimes greatness comes down to just that…inches. As for St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan, it isn’t about inches, it is about miles. 6.28 miles to be exact.
With his senior season left to play, Brennan has already thrown for over six miles. That sounds crazy right? But that is what 11,045 yards comes to. What is most impressive is not that yardage or the 117 passing touchdowns, but the number of interceptions he has thrown. In 1,068 attempts, Brennan has only been picked off 22 times. That is a staggering percentage.
Brennan is re-writing the record books in Mississippi and while doing so had led his Rock-a-Chaws to back-to-back South State 4A Titles. A feat he can’t help but be proud of.
“As a team, I felt like we progressed really well,” Brennan told SES Mississippi. “We started slow but came along great. As an individual, I felt like I accomplished many great things and got 100 times better this year.”
However, with all of the records and numbers Brennan and company have been putting up, there is one stat that is most glaring to the Rocks. The number is 0.
Two years in a row St. Stanislaus has stormed into the 4A State Championship only to leave as the runner-up. When asked if that left a bad taste in their mouth, the field general quickly responded.
“That is an understatement,” Brennan expressed. “The attitude of our team is all hunger. All we want is to get that title.”
Brennan returns a lot of his favorite targets for the 2016 season as he tries to lock down the gold ball before riding off into the sunset with perhaps every single Mississippi High School passing record.
As for his off-season, Brennan plans to work hard and do a little groundwork on life after high school.
“I am just going to workout everyday and get better,” Brennan said. “I’m going to start making some visits and looking at some colleges.”
Brennan also has several camps and combines lined up throughout the spring and summer.
