Here it is…
“I knew we needed it for the tie,” Rehkow told ESPN.com’s Mason Kelley. “I felt confident in my leg strength. I went out there, you get that extra adrenaline going and then I let it rip. Luckily it stayed through the uprights. Once I saw the arms go up, it was just an overwhelming feeling of joy.”
Rehkow’s kick was one yard shorter than the longest in high school football history — Dirk Borgognone (Reno, Nev.) converted from 68 yards in 1985, as reported by the Seattle Times.
Kelley reports that Rehkow does not own a single Division 1 offer. That should soon change.
Rehkow wasn’t the only player on the field Thursday night to smash a Washington state record. Shadle Park sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien — whose uncle, Mark, was the MVP of Super Bowl XXVI with the Washington Redskins — threw for 577 yards, to eclipse the previous single-game mark by 61 yards.
