Devils’ QB Reagan sets records in loss

If you have Shayne Reagan in your fantasy football league, your weekend got off to a pretty healthy start.

On Senior Night at Davis High, it was the junior quarterback who bathed in the spotlight.

Setting a school record with five touchdown passes, Reagan overcame an injury Ñ and a 33-0 deficit Ñ to bring the Blue Devils within a whisker of beating Elk Grove. While DHS lost, 45-37, ReaganÕs performance was one for the books.

Throwing for the school-record five TDs, Reagan hit on 22-of-41 passes without an interception. He had 293 yards through the air.

Now with 17 touchdown passes, Reagan also tied the single-season mark, set in 1988 by Brian Wernicke.

ÒEvery game, I get a coach (from the) other team telling me. ÔYour No. 10 is the best quarterback in the leagueÕ … or Ôthe best one IÕve seen this year,ÕÓ DHS head coach Steve Smyte says. ÒHe throws dimes.Ó

Smyte said before the season started Reagan Òhas an NFL-like arm.Ó Folks chuckled.

After FridayÕs performance, nobody is laughing.

Reagan hit Majed Eddin with his first TD sling Ñ a 20-yarder just before half. Then he got some help from Dillard Brown, who made a diving catch on a deflected four-yarder to open the third period.

After that, all similarities to NavyÕs Roger Staubach are coincidental.

Working behind an undersized offensive line that can get pushed around, Reagan typically finds himself throwing off sprint-outs.

Friday was no different.

He connected with Peter Smith for a 61-yard score, then found Eddin again for a 40-yarder to tie the record. The mark fell when he got Brown on a perfect fade to the left corner, good for 15 yards and No. 5.

Reagan breaks the record of four TD passes set by Jim Speck against Jesuit in 1972 and WernickeÕs big night in 1988 versus Woodland.

Despite limiting the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Reagan to 8-of-24 passing for 59 yards on Oct. 22, Grant defensive coordinator Reggie Harris saw through the Pacer harassment:

ÒHeÕs the best quarterback in the Delta Valley Conference. Period.Ó

Reagan gives his receivers the credit for Òall the hard work theyÕve put in.Ó And, regardless of how heÕs been treated by defenses like nationally ranked Grant, the personable QB says ÒItÕs all a lot of fun.Ó

Oh, about the 20-yard dart to Eddin just before halftime? The Reagans might want to save that video. Colleges love seeing an NFL-style quarterback in action.

Behind the numbers: Reagan has 1,383 yards throwing the fall (the DHS record is Brendan EdmondsÕ 1,877) with those 17 touchdowns and only nine picks. Eric Beavers, who

went on to play at Nevada, has the single-game Devil passing yardage mark with 347 against Foothill in 1994. … Devil fans had their hearts in their throats after intermission. Reagan came out banged up, bandaged and favoring his right knee. After Brandon Hassid took a snap or two, Reagan was back in. ÒBursitis,Ó team doctor Rob Peterson confirmed afterwards. ÒHe did

it falling on the turf (on the TD pass just before half).Ó Bothersome, but not serious, promised Peterson.
