Couple of milestones for UConn commit

St. Paul senior quarterback and UConn commit Logan Marchi became the second Connecticut player to throw 100 career touchdowns and had his first 100-yard rushing game in last night's win over Sacred Heart.

According to the Bristol Press Marchi was 16 of 24 passing for 278 yards and five touchdowns and also ran for 108 yards and two touchdowns in a 56-41 win over Sacred Heart.

Marchi now has 103 career touchdown passes which leaves him nine shy of the state record set by current UConn redshirt freshman quarterback Casey Cochran. Marchi also joined Cochran as the only state players with 9,000 career passing yards.Of Cochran's records that Marchi is closing in on, the one he figures to get to first is for most career completions as he needs 46 to match Cochran's mark of 635.

Fellow UConn commit Arkeel Newsome saw limited action last night as he rushed three times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and returned a punt 79 yards for a score in a 41-7 win over Watertown.

Newsome went over the 2,000-yard mark during the game and led the Chargers to their 36th straight win which is tied for the second longest in state history.

Newsome extended his state records for career rushing yards (8,823) and touchdowns (153).

Newsome passed NFL career rushing leader Emmitt Smith in career rushing yards and according to national high school football record book he is 17th all-time nationally in career rushing yards, sixth in rushing touchdowns and fifth in total touchdowns.
