Kelan Luker couldn't do it, and neither could Kendal Briles.

Stephenville has a long line of successful quarterbacks going back to 1990, but Tyler Jones lit up the scoreboard like none other on Friday.

Stephenville football historian Cody Derrick reports that Jones set a school record when he passed for eight touchdowns to lead the Yellow Jackets to a 56-24 rout of Kennedale in the second round of the Class 3A Division I football playoffs. Four of his scoring strikes went to Brice Gunter - one for 95 yards, the team's longest play of the season - who will join Jones at Texas State in the fall.

Gunter finished with 10 receptions for 223 yards, third most in school history.

The Empire-Tribune is awaiting coaches' official stats from game film to confirm if Jones set another school record. Two different passing totals - 469 yards and 478 - were reported, with the record belonging to Briles with 477 yards back in 1999.

Jones topped 2,900 passing yards in the win, and now has 34 touchdowns to four interceptions on the season. Gunter has topped 1,000 receiving yards for the second straight year and now has 14 touchdown catches this fall.

Luker held the previous record for touchdown passes in a game with seven in 1998. Cody Cardwell holds the top two marks for receiving yards in a game, both from 1998.
