Tanner Trosin’s official numbers: 34 completions out of 49 attempts for 601 yards and five touchdowns. That’s the most passing yards in a game in Sac-Joaquin Section and Northern California history and the third-highest total in state history, according to the record book as reported on For his efforts, Trosin was named the Air Force/MaxPreps National Player of the Week. Trosin said the come-from-behind 49-46 win over Deer Valley made those numbers even better. “I think those numbers are incredible,” Trosin said on Sunday. “I thought maybe I broke 400 yards, but I didn’t think I pulled off 600. I’m pretty stoked about it, but I felt really good that we were able to win that game. I’m glad we pulled it out.” Folsom coach Kris Richardson added, “Those are unbelievable numbers and he needed every one of them to pull this game out.” Trosin’s been a quarterback for several years, but this was his first fourth-quarter comeback win that he can remember that came down to a score so late in the game. “This gives me confidence that if we’re in this position down the road that I know what to do and I can pull on this experience and know that I can get it done,” Trosin said. Making those numbers even more remarkable is that Trosin did it with three starting wide receivers on the bench and two offensive linemen making the first starts of their varsity careers. Starting wide receivers Carson McMurtrey and Phillip Carter did not suit up and Doug Vernon ran one play and pulled himself from the game with a hip injury. Offensive guards Sukhchan Gill and Reed Garmsen were learning about varsity football for the first time. Troy Knox, Trace Noble, Rodney Ellison and Taylor Miller-Wing stepped in for the injured receivers. “Troy Knox stepped up and had a great game,” Trosin said. “He’s a smaller guy, but he’s a player.” Knox caught 14 passes for 248 yards and one touchdown, while J’Juan Muldrow, who caught the game-winning touchdown, made 10 catches for 251 yards and three scores. “The fact that he put up those numbers without three starter receivers is something else,” Richardson said. “My hat’s off to Troy for stepping up and Tanner did that on one leg considering his ankle still is still bothering him. I’m also proud of the two new guys on the offensive line.”
