Five Garden City Trojans Football Records that Will Never Be Broken: A Local’s View

Garden City senior Ryan Norton eclipsed a school record that had stood since the 2006 season when he kicked a 49-yard field goal in the third quarter of his team's 34-3 win Oct. 16 over the Calhoun Colts. The boot, which was Norton's 12th field goal for the Trojans since 2009, broke Dillon Dwyer's former school record of 11 field goals in a career. Here is a look at five Garden City Trojans school football records that are not likely to ever be broken.

2,474 Career Rushing Yards

Peter Case's 2,474 rushing yards in a three-year career has been a Garden City school record since the 1987 season. Case also holds the school record for most rushing yards in a single season, as he ran for 1,142 yards in 1986.

14 Career Interceptions

Brad Hay holds the Trojans' record for most interceptions in a single season (9) and career (14). Hay played for Garden City from 1994-96, and he tallied nine interceptions during the 1994 season.

14 Career Touchdown Receptions

Don McDonough's record for touchdown receptions in a single season (9) and career (14) has stood for 20 seasons. He notched nine touchdown completions during the 1991 season.

391 Points Scored in a Season

The Trojans racked up 391 points in 10 games during the 2005 football season. The 2005 Trojans team also earned the school record for most points scored in a game (63), which occured Oct. 15, 2005 against the South Side Cyclones.

13 Points Allowed in the Single Season

The Trojans' defense was nearly impenetrable in 1985, as they allowed just 13 points all season. That averages out to less than two points per game allowed.
