If you are looking for record-breaking quarterback, look no further than Lincoln High junior Cedric Case.
Case completed 200 of 293 passes (68.3 percent) for 3,249 yards, 35 touchdowns and four interceptions, and added a pair of rushing touchdowns. His average of 324.9 passing yards per game broke a 11-man state record.
"Personally 2017 doesn't mean anything if I can't do it again," Case said. "We need to win in the playoffs — that has to be our goal."
Case is working on a few things this offseason to make sure he and his teammates can have a better ending to 2018.
"I'm working on my speed and ball velocity," he said. "I'm working with the track team and going to those practices to help with my speed."
At 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, Case says he is more athletic than people think.
"I can run more than people think and and have grown the last few years," Case said. "I really am open to anyone and finding the right path for myself."
That path will take him to more than a handful of schools. Case plans to either camp or unofficially visit Nebraska, Iowa State, South Dakota State, North Dakota State, North Dakota, South Dakota and Illinois State.
Case will be looking at a few things on his visits.
"The type of offense they run, interaction with coaches and players and what that looks like are important to me," he said. "I feel like I can run any offense, besides maybe the triple option."
Case has already built a strong rapport with one coach.
"I've talked with (quarterback coach) Randy Hedberg at North Dakota State a lot and he seems very genuine," Case said.
