Anderson’s lethal passing attack is causing the record books to be rewritten.

Quarterback Gator Wilson and receiver Marquice Crowell etched their names in Cub lore during last week’s 39-28 loss to Corning. Wilson’s three passing touchdowns put him at 21 on the year, passing the single-season school record of 20 set by Troy Sisneros in 1986.

As for Crowell, the third-year varsity standout is the record holder for receiving yards and receiving touchdowns with 974 and 13, respectively. Crowell passed Blake Arrowsmith’s record of 958 receiving yards set in 2005 and he passed the 12 receiving TD mark set by both Tom Sharp (1988) and Matt White (1990).

Wilson is within reach of setting the single-season school passing yardage record of 1,757 by the late Denny Brugman in 1990. Wilson is at 1,674 passing yards this year, needing 84 yards to hold the record.

Anderson (5-4), which has lost three of its past four games, wraps up the 2019 season Friday at Yreka and aren’t expected to make the playoffs.
