Marana senior quarterback Trenton Bourguet threw for 2,984 yards last year, putting him in prime position to be the third QB from the Tucson area to surpass 7,000 career passing yards. He would need to throw for a ridiculous 3,542 yards this fall to overtake former Catalina Foothills standout Rhett Rodriguez but the 8,000 mark is within reach.

The state record is 10,489 career passing yards by Emanuel Gant of Tempe from 2011 to 2014.
