ALMA (KFSM)--This season Alma quarterback Noah Dotson has etched his name in the Airedales football record book. The senior signal-caller has thrown for over 2,000 yards, while also amassing over 1,000 yards on the ground and tallied 28-total touchdowns.

"We knew he was special," said Alma coach Doug Loughridge. "To break them the way he has and to set the march as high as he has. I think he set some of the records that may never been broken and there's been a lot of good quarterbacks to come through Alma."

Dotson's primary focus has not been about the records, he's goal was to help his teammates.

"I knew I was around it, but I haven't been keeping track of it that much," said Dotosn. "It's pretty nice. I try not to keep up with it that much. I'm just trying to whatever I can for my team."

Dotson has also set his teammates up for success. Wide receiver Brayden Johnson has also surpassed the grand-mark for receiving yards this season. It's the first time in the program's history that they have players reach those milestones all in the same year.

"I mean we knew we were going to have a good offense," said Johnson. "But, not both over a thousand each but it's awesome to have that. I thank my line and my quarterback for getting the ball to me."

Thanks to Dotson's record breaking season, the Airedales are heading into the 5A quarterfinals this week. Whether or not they’re able to capture the 5A title head coach Doug Loughridge sees a bright future for Dotson.

"I think sky's the limit with him," said Loughridge. "I think he's already getting some looks from some small colleges, but I think he's got a high ceiling. He's already proven that he is one of if not the best player in the 5-A and in a lot of classifications so I think the skies the limit with him."

Alma will be facing Watson Chapel at home this Friday at 7:00 p.m.
