Tommy Mister made a monumental mark in his one season at St. Rita High School.
In 14 games, the Mustangs' quarterback accounted for a whopping 38 touchdowns, 1,610 rushing yards and 1,434 more through the air in leading St. Rita to a 12-2 record in 2013. As a comparison, in 16 games, the entire Chicago Bears roster accounted for 51 touchdowns.
"My stats were amazing," said Mister, who transferred to the Southwest Side Catholic high school from Richards. "It was just an overall great year."
His high school career isn't officially over as Mister, an Indiana recruit, was selected to play for Team USA's under-19 squad, which faces Team Canada on Feb. 7 in Arlington, Texas, in the 2014 International Bowl.
"It's a great honor to see Tommy represent our country and continue his so-called high school career before college," said St. Rita head coach Todd Kuska, who will attend the game with Mustangs assistant coach John Gutrich.
"It will be nice to cheer on one of my guys, and hopefully he will have a large role in a USA victory."
Kuska, who's been St. Rita's head coach for 14 seasons and on the Mustangs'
staff for 16, said Mister's 2013 campaign was unprecedented in his
tenure at the school.
