Ryan Katz

In Saturday’s blowout victory over Hawaii, quarterback Ryan Katz showed his dual-threat abilities, creating chaos for the opposing defense both in the air and on his feet.

He finished the game with 190 yards passing, 57 yards on the ground and five total touchdowns. Through six games, he now has a total of 268 net rushing yards.

So who is the all-time leader for net rushing yards in a season by a San Diego State quarterback?

 

Kevin O’Connell 

In 2007, quarterback Kevin O’Connell rushed for 408 net yards, beating his previous record of 402 yards set in 2005. He is currently at the top of the all-time list for net rushing yards in a season by a quarterback.

Can Katz break the record?

Just halfway through the season, Katz has a great chance to cement his name in the SDSU record books. If he can mirror his first-half production on the ground in the second half of the season, he will finish with over 500 yards rushing.

Make sure to keep an eye on Katz the rest of the season to see if he can set a new mark for future running quarterbacks at SDSU.
