HUNTSVILLE,​ ​Texas-​ ​There​ ​is​ ​a​ ​new​ ​career​ ​passing​ ​leader​ ​at Sam Houston State. Senior quarterback ​Jeremiah​ ​Briscoe ​ ​was​ ​able​ ​to surpass former​ ​China​ ​Spring​ ​star​ ​quarterback​ ​Brian​ ​Bell​ ​(8,655​ ​career passing​ ​yards),​ ​for​ ​the​ ​record​ ​in​ ​Saturday’s​ ​Homecoming​ ​victory​ ​over​ ​Lamar​ ​63-27.​ ​

“I​ ​had​ ​no idea​ ​until​ ​Jason​ ​Barfield​ ​told​ ​me​ ​after​ ​the​ ​game.”​ ​Jeremiah​ ​Briscoe​ ​on​ ​breaking​ ​the​ ​record.​ ​“I’m honored,​ ​what​ ​Brian​ ​Bell​ ​did​ ​here,​ ​it’s​ ​truly​ ​a​ ​blessing.”

The​ ​record​ ​breaking​ ​play​ ​came​ ​for​ ​Briscoe,​ ​as​ ​he​ ​connected​ ​with​ ​Coree​ ​Compton​ ​on​ ​a​ ​57​ ​yard strike​ ​down​ ​the​ ​right​ ​sideline​ ​for​ ​his​ ​90th​ ​career​ ​touchdown.​ ​Briscoe​ ​became​ ​the​ ​3rd​ ​overall​ ​in league​ ​history​ ​for​ ​touchdown​ ​passes​ ​on​ ​the​ ​play​ ​as​ ​well,​ ​moving​ ​ahead​ ​of​ ​SFA’s​ ​Brad​ ​Attaway.

“It’s​ ​a​ ​great​ ​feeling​ ​but​ ​I​ ​wouldn’t​ ​be​ ​where​ ​I​ ​am​ ​without​ ​my​ ​offensive​ ​linemen​ ​and​ ​receivers.” Briscoe​ ​said​ ​“These​ ​receivers​ ​make​ ​me​ ​look​ ​good​ ​catching​ ​balls​ ​and​ ​turning​ ​them​ ​into touchdowns.”

Briscoe​ ​left​ ​the​ ​game​ ​early​ ​in​ ​the​ ​third​ ​quarter,​ ​but​ ​not​ ​before​ ​leading​ ​the​ ​Bearkats​ ​to​ ​scoring drives​ ​on​ ​10​ ​of​ ​their​ ​first​ ​12​ ​possessions.​ ​Briscoe​ ​finished​ ​the​ ​game​ ​17-36​ ​passing​ ​for​ ​371 yards​ ​and​ ​4​ ​touchdowns.

During​ ​his​ ​career, ​Jeremiah​ ​Briscoe​ ​has​ ​put​ ​up​ ​some​ ​very​ ​impressive​ ​numbers.
