REWRITING THE RECORD BOOKS:

Taylor Heinicke put his name all over the game passing records in the week one win over Duquesne.

- Heinicke's 492 yards passed the previous high of 407 yards by Thomas DeMarco at Monmouth on September 25, 2010 and his previous high of 373 against Richmond back on November 5, 2011.

- Heinicke's 41 completions passed the previous high of 34 which he had set against Richmond on November 5, 2011.

- Heinicke's 63 attempts replaced the previous high of 57 attempts made by Thomas DeMarco against Cal Poly in 2010 and his own previous high of 47 against Richmond on November 5, 2011.

- Henicke also set school mark with 530 yards of total offense (492 pass, 38 rush)  with a record 74 plays.  He surpasses his previous record of 421 yards of total offense against Richmond back on November 5, 2011 and the previous high of 73 plays set by former Monarch Thomas DeMarco against Cal Poly on October 9, 2010.

In week three against Campbell, Heinicke found another place to put his name.

- Heinicke reset his own school record for touchdown passes in a game with seven in the victory over Campbell. Heinicke surpassed the previous record of five TD passes in both of last year's playoff games vs. Norfolk State on Nov. 26, 2011 and at Georgia Southern on Dec. 3, 2011. 

- The quarterback's passing yards were the 10th-highest total in CAA Football history, while his seven TD-passes were one shy from equaling the league mark last done in 2004.

Then in week four against New Hampshire in the CAA Opener, the ODU, FCS, and Division I record books blew up.

PASSING YARDS IN A QUARTER: Heinicke’s 293-yard fourth quarter eclipsed the FCS record of 284 set by Western Illinois’ Sam Clemons in the second quarter versus Indiana State in 2001.

PASSING YARDS IN A HALF: Heinicke’s 480-yard second half dismantled the FCS record of 383 set by Marshall’s Michael Payton in the first half against VMI in 1991. The Division I record is 517 by Houston’s Andre Ware against SMU in 1989.

PASSING YARDS IN A GAME: As noted Saturday, Heinicke’s 730 yards bests the Division I record of Houston’s David Klingler, who threw for 716 against Arizona State in 1990, but just misses the all-division record of 736 by Sam Durley of Eureka College (DII) in a 62-55 comeback win over Knox College earlier this season. The FCS record was 624 by Weber State’s Jamie Martin against Idaho State in 1991.   

PASSES IN A GAME WITHOUT AN INTERCEPTION: Heinicke’s 79 breaks the all-division record of 77 set by Justin Peery of Division III Westminster of Missouri against MacMurray in 1998. The Division I record of 76 was shared by Eastern Michigan’s Andy Schmitt (versus Temple in 2008) and Houston’s Case Keenum (against UTEP in 2009).

TOTAL OFFENSE IN A QUARTER: Heinicke’s 293 yards in the fourth, all through the air, breaks the FCS record of 278 set by Mississippi Valley State’s Willie Totten in the second quarter against Kentucky State in 1984.

TOTAL OFFENSE IN A HALF: Heinicke had 496 after intermission (480 passing, 16 rushing), lapping the FCS record of 404 set by Stephen F. Austin’s Todd Hammel in the first quarter against Louisiana-Monroe in 1989.

TOTAL OFFENSE IN A GAME: Also as noted Saturday, Heinicke’s 791 yards (730 passing, 61 rushing) are an NCAA record, besting Klingler’s 732 (716 passing, 16 rushing) versus Arizona State in 1990. The FCS record was 668 by Jackson State’s Robert Kent (595 passing, 73 rushing) against Alabama State in 2001.

Keeping Pace: If the season were to end today, Heinicke would finish third on the all-time single-season FCS charts for passing yards per game with 390.00 and in total offense per game with 428.22


BLOCK THAT KICK:

Special teams has 25 blocks to its credit in its four seasons, including a pair of blocked PATs this season.

The first of the 2012 campaign was a blocked PAT by senior Erik Saylor in the season opener with Duquesne.  It was Saylor's second blocked PAT of his career.

Chris Burnette captured a blocked extra point attempt at Richmond in week five mid-way through the fourth quarter.  It was the first blocked PAT for Burnette who previously had denied five field goal attemps during his Monarch career.

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN:

The captains for the Football Monarchs for the 2012 season are senior linebacker Craig Wilkins, senior defensive lineman Chris Burnette, and sophomore quarterback Taylor Heinicke. A fourth captain will be named each week during the season selected based on his leadership skills displayed leading up to each game.
