Highland's Bergeron Sets College Record
Highland’s Bergeron Sets College Record
The Highland Community College victory on Saturday was memorable for several reasons. It was the Scotties’ first win over Coffeyville since 2000 when the Scotties won by a score of 27-7. The win also gives the Scotties their first four-win season since 2000. In leading the Scotties to the win, freshman quarterback Brandon Bergeron connected on 30 of 39 pass attempts for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Bergeron now has 17 touchdown passes for the season, three short of the HCC record 20 held by Jeff Abbott in 2000. In the game, Bergeron did set the HCC record for single season passing yards, currently at 2206. The old record was 2100 yards by Billy Bob Orsagh in 2006. Bergeron has two games left in the season to catch Abbott, as the Scotties travel to Garden City on October 12 and then close out the regular season with a home contest when they host Independence on October 26.
