Two players set unofficial single-season statistical records for Wyoming high school football in 2019 — one breaking the single-season receiving yards mark and the other setting a new standard for defensive points.
Meanwhile, three Class 4A quarterbacks finished in the top five all-time in passing yards.
The individual records page lists the unofficial top 10 performances in a variety of single-game and single-season categories. This year’s updates were based on final season statistics posted at Wyopreps.
Season records set in 2019:
- Cheyenne East’s Chance Aumiller set a single-season record with 1,121 receiving yards.
- Wright’s Dax Yeradi also set a season record with 331 defensive points. Thunder Basin’s Caleb Driskill finished third with 293 defensive points and Cokeville’s Nate Barnes was sixth all-time with 287.
- Cheyenne East’s Graedyn Buell finished second all-time with 2,989 passing yards. Cheyenne Central’s Dawson Macleary was close behind in third all-time with 2,621 yards, while Thunder Basin’s Mason Hamilton was fifth all-time with 2,561 yards.
- Jackson’s Jeydon Cox finished fifth all-time with 2,038 rushing yards. He’s the first Wyoming running back to finish a career with multiple 2,000-yard seasons.
Single-game records set in 2019 include the following:
- Buell notched the seventh-best passing game of all time with a 390-yard passing game against Natrona on Sept. 27. In the same game, Aumiller finished with 237 receiving yards, good for fifth-best all-time.
- On the same day, Hamilton threw for 382 yards against Gillette, 10th-best all time.
- Also on Sept. 27, Burns’ Boe Clayson ran for 339 yards against Wheatland, tied for eighth-best all-time.
- Big Horn’s Will Pelissier turned in the ninth-best receiving performance in state history with a 214-yard effort against Southeast.
Keep in mind that these listings are unofficial but as complete as they can be at this point. As always, I’m interested in hearing about games or seasons that should be on the records list that I’ve missed. If you’ve got any such games or seasons to add, let me know by leaving a comment here or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
