The passing game took center stage for Brownstown Central’s football team during a 49-13 victory against Silver Creek on Friday night, giving junior quarterback Clay Brown another chance to stamp his name into the Braves’ record book.
Taking advantage of a Silver Creek defense that was designed to stop Brownstown’s running attack, Brown threw five touchdown passes and a single-game school-record 290 yards. The yardage total edged Brown past longtime record holder Todd Sturgeon, who threw for 286 yards against Corydon in 1981.
Breaking decades-old records is almost becoming routine for Brown, who earlier this season reset the school’s long-held single-game record for TD passes — five, which he tied Friday against Silver Creek.
