It's turning out to be some special season for Tanner Trosin.
The Folsom High School senior quarterback has steered the defending Division II state bowl champions to a 3-1 start, and he's off to a prolific start despite not playing with a full deck.
On Friday, Trosin set the Northern California single-game passing record with a 601-yard gem against Deer Valley in Antioch despite not having three starting receivers due to injury and laboring with his own severely sprained ankle.
Trosin's last pass was the difference, a 40-yard strike that just cleared the hand of the safety, as J'Juan Muldrow hauled it in for a touchdown. It was 4th down and forever and Folsom prevailed 49-46.
Trosin was 34 of 49 passing with five touchdowns, three to Muldrow. On Monday, Trosin learned that he was named the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Player of the Week, the first area player to achieve such an honor.
"He's carried us on his back," Folsom coach Kris Richardson said. "He's a warrior."
Trosin's passing mark obliterated the previous Sac-Joaquin Section record of 479 yards set by North Hills Christian-Vacaville's Darren Campas in 2004. The NorCal record was previously held by Sean Mannion of Foothill-Pleasanton in 2009 with 582. Mannion is now on scholarship at Oregon State, where one of his receivers is Tyler Trosin, older brother of Tanner. Tyler watched from the Antioch sideline on Friday.
For the season, Trosin has passed for 1,605 yards and 15 touchdowns with six rushing scores.
