Quarterback Tyler Baty is nearing school and San Luis Obispo County history for the 4-0 Mission Prep football team. The Royals, who are the top ranked team in the CIF Northeast Division, host Greenfield on Friday night at 7:30 pm.
Baty enters the game with 62 career touchdown passes. 15 came in his sophomore year, he threw 31 last year as a junior and has 15 already this season for the 4-0 Royals. Tyler needs three to tie and four to break San Luis Obispo County's record for 11-man football.
Mission Prep graduate Dylan Morrow set the San Luis Obispo County record with 65 in 2008.
"I actually had no idea until today so I mean I don't think about it. I mean it's cool. But I'm not going to focus on it. I'm just really focusing on finishing this year and getting to the playoffs," said Baty, who has thrown zero interceptions this season and just 4 in the last 14 games.
"His ability to understand what we want to do, to make good decisions within our scheme, to get us out of big plays, understanding our game plan from week to week, the intangibles that he has are just off the chart," praised Mission head coach Chad Henry, a former quarterback at Cal Poly.
Henry credited his team's offensive line, solid running game and talented, big play receivers for Mission's success. The Royals have outscored their opponents 186-27 this season.
