One of the most impressive high school passing careers in Washington, and for that matter the nation, came to a close Saturday. Next stop, Boise State.
Brett Rypien, who plans to enroll in January and join the Broncos for spring practices, threw for 329 yards in a season-ending loss in the playoffs, but it gave him 13,044 career passing yards the most in Washington state history. The Shadle Park High quarterback topped Max Browne (Sammamish High), now at USC, who had thrown for 12,953. Rypien also finished with 1,006 career completions, also best in the state history books. His 140 touchdown passes are pretty amazing, but Bronco legend Kellen Moore threw a record 173 at Prosser High.
Rypien's season came to an end, along with future offensive teammates Garrett Larson and Akilian Butler. Defensive back commits Ladarryl Blair (Texas) and Damion Wright (California) are still alive in their respective state playoffs.
