Therriault shattered three Jackson State records and led the Tigers to a 51-7 blowout in the Capital City Classic Saturday afternoon.

In front of an announced crowd of 31,500, Therriault captured JSU’s single season records for total offense, most completed passes, and passing yards.  Therriault, known for his “Green-Eyed” monster moniker, passed Robert “Superman” Kent for total offense (3911) and passing yards (3808).  The Wyoming, Mich. native broke his own record for single season completion with 272 passes.

Coming off a stellar passing game against Alabama A&M, Therriault threw for a monstrous career-high 539 yards and four touchdowns.  Therriault, the SWAC’s top quarterback, was the conference player of the week, as well as the College Sports Madness Football Championship Subdivision National Player of the Week.

“We wanted to end the season on a high note,” said Therriault.  “We wanted to score a lot of points.”

Therriault said that the records were not his focus for posting career high numbers against arch rival Alcorn State (2-8, 1-8).

“My motivation was Alcorn first and foremost,” said Therriault.  “Also, it was the last game of the year.  It felt good to have the biggest game of my career at Jackson State.  It felt good to score a lot of points.”

Jackson State University head coach Rick Comegy added:  “Casey had a tremendous day.  He gave us an All-American effort out there today.  I hope we get another one like him.”

The Braves defense was no hindrance for the JSU “Air Raid” offense attack, which amassed 687 yards of total offense and scored 51 points.  Jackson State (9-2, 7-2) averaged 34.3 points and 471 yards of total offense entering the contest.
