Few quarterbacks in the history of the state have ever been as productive as Mount Pleasant senior Cullen Grubbs was last Friday night.

The 6-1, 200-pound signal-caller threw for 490 yards and nine touchdowns, which according to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine is tied for the second-most single-game TD’s in state history, in the Tigers’ 77-34 rout of Terrell.

And for his efforts, Grubbs is the + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week.

The performance ranks only behind Refugio’s Travis Quintanilla’s 10-touchdown effort against Taft in 2012.

Grubbs, who completed 20 of 30 attempts, connected with three different receivers in the end zone. Five of the touchdowns belonged to senior Baylor commit K.D. Cannon, who finished with nine catches for 271 yards and scored on catches of 50, 22, 40, 64 and 51 yards. Andrew Flanagan had five receptions for 123 yards and two TD’s, while Jaquille Rodgers scored twice on five catches for 73 yards.

All nine touchdown passes occurred before the fourth quarter, four coming in Mount Pleasant’s 41-point opening period.
