Brett Hundley, For The Record

There is a lot buzz around UCLA Quarterback Brett Hundley and for good reason… he is an incredible football player on a great team. He has already had two brilliant seasons in Westwood and looks to have another this the fall. 2014 is going to be a big year for Hundley, not just because he could have UCLA as national contenders, but as an individual, he could claim several of UCLA’s All-Time records in football. Let that sink in for a second.

What Hundley has done in his time as a Bruin is nothing short of spectacular and his numbers back that up. The soon-to-be junior QB already holds three UCLA season records, all of which were freshman year achievements. As for his sophomore year, his passing numbers were down, but it was not a digression. In fact, he was busy accumulating the most rushing yards among all Bruins with 748, nearly 400 yards more than he had his freshman year.

As of now Hundley holds the records for:

Single-Season Completions: 318

Single-Season Passing Yards: 3,740

Single-Season Total Offense: 4,095

And that is not all, if Hundley is to do this season what Bruin fans hopes he can do, then he is will claim several All-Time records by the National Title Game.

As of now, this is where Hundley stands on a few All-Time Records lists (current rank in parentheses):

Total Offense: 7,919 yds (3rd)

Touchdown Passes: 53 (3rd)

Passes Completed: 567 (3rd)

Passing Yards: 6,816 (4th)

That is a lot to live up to, but for some reason, it seems completely attainable for Hundley to get one, if not all of those records. The best thing is, for all Hundley has done in his first two seasons, he is only going to get better. On top of that, he will be working with a deep receiving corps and a seasoned offensive line, two things UCLA has not had in a long time. Knowing that, it is no longer a question of can he break these records, but when will he?
