It certainly was a record-breaker.
Camarillo High senior wideout Jake Maulhardt caught 28 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns during last weekend’s 52-28 Scorpion loss at Canyon.
Maulhardt’s superhuman effort surpassed the state’s singlegame reception record by two catches.
The previous mark of 26 receptions in a game was established by David Sepulveda of Fullerton in 1988.
According to MaxPreps.com, Maulhardt’s haul was the thirdhighest single-game reception total in national history.
The 6-foot-7 Maulhardt now has 52 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns on the season. He’s on pace to shatter the state’s single-season reception record of 122 catches established last year by Thousand Oaks’ Richard Mullaney.
