With his 279-yard, three-touchdown performance in Saturday's 42-19 win over Glen Allen, Denbigh quarterback Terrence Dingle moved higher in the Peninsula District record book.
Dingle's 2,274 passing yards are now fourth on the PD's single-season list. Hampton's Ronald Curry is first and third with 2,577 (1997) and 2,293 yards ('96). Both were in a 14-game season. Newport News' Jim Hogan is second with 2,503, which came in 10 games.
Dingle is now averaging 206.7 yards per game, which trails Hogan's 250.3.
Dingle also has 26 touchdown passes, the third-best season in district history. Curry has the top two spots with 36 in '96 and 27 in '97.
On another note, Phoebus back Marshawn Williams has 1,978 yards after 11 games. He needs 22 more to become the seventh back in Peninsula District history to break 2,000. Five of the previous six -- including Elan Lewis, who did it twice -- are from Phoebus.
Williams' current average of 179.8 yards per game would rank fourth.
