Michael’s nine touchdowns ties state record


Robby Michael tied a state record Aug. 27 with nine touchdowns, a feat that hadn’t been accomplished in over 100 years.

The Kohler/Lutheran/Christian senior quarterback also tied the state mark for most passing touchdowns in a game with seven in an 80-6 victory over Random Lake.

The reigning offensive player of the year in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference who is drawing interest from some Division I schools, finished with 19 completions for 265 yards passing and also rushed the ball 11 times for 131 yards.

“It was a great feeling, especially knowing that my teammates were cheering me on the whole way and that I could get them involved as well with seven passing touchdowns,” Michael said. “It was just a great moment.”

Colin Girdaukas caught three touchdown passes, and the others went to Matt Stephany, Casey Verhagen, Will Grasse and Noah Heinen.

“Obviously 80 points is a lot, but we just did our jobs and everything turned out in a good way for us,” Michael said.

Last season, Michael earned second-team all-state by the Associated Press as an all-purpose player.
