In case you're wondering where Jon Heil's 366-yard rushing performance against Ridgefield on Tuesday ranks in state history, it doesn't even put him in the top 20, as impressive as it was.
Ansonia's Alex Thomas holds the state's single-game rushing record of 518 yards set against Woodland Regional on Sept. 27, 2007.
According to the Connecticut high school football state record book, Heil is tied for 24th on the all-time list.
Ansonia's Arkeel Newsome has surpassed 366 yards on two occasions this season, rushing for 401 yards against Derby and 384 yards against Holy Cross.
In addition to Newsome, the record book lists 11 other players who have rushed for at least 400 yards in a game in state history and two who surpassed 500 yards. Farmington's Brandon Williard is second all-time, running for 508 yards against Plainville in 2002.
It should be noted, however, that Heil's mark will go into the books as an FCIAC record.
Of course, Heil isn't even the Wreckers' leading rusher, and perhaps the most impressive aspect about Tuesday is that he doubled his season output in a single game.
Heil, who went into Tuesday's contest with 364 yards, increased his total to 730 yards, which is still behind Zelkowitz's team-leading mark of 876 yards. Nick Kelly is the Wreckers' third-leading rusher with 667 yards.
Zelkowitz did not play against Ridgefield because he was still feeling the affects of a shoulder separation suffered against Fairfield Warde on Nov. 5
