Quarterback Drew Schnitz not only had a career night, it was a record-setting night in Huntington North's victory against Anderson.
Schnitz set a state record with nine touchdown passes as Huntington North defeated Anderson 62-49 on Friday in Huntington.
The senior was 21-of-36 for 380 passing yards. Schnitz threw seven of his nine touchdowns in the first three quarters to help the Vikings jump out to a 50-29 lead.
Five Huntington North (2-3) receivers had receptions. Receiver Caleb Richison had a game-high 12 receptions and 233 receiving yards. He also was the only Huntington North receiver with more than five receptions and 100 receiving yards against Anderson (1-4).
The previous Indiana record for touchdown passes in a single game was eight. Four former high school quarterbacks -- West Washington's Martin Chastain, River Forest's Michael Perkins, Indiana Creek's Casey Gillin and Lafayette Jefferson's Mike Vlahogeorge -- had been tied for the record.
Schnitz was also one touchdown away from tying the state record for most total touchdowns in the a single game, which was set by Indianapolis Shortridge's Walter Peacock in 1971.
