Each Jackrabbit football game this season, it seems that standout senior quarterback Taryn Christion breaks a record.

Against Indiana State, Christion became the all-time leader in passing yards passing Austin Sumner, who played for the Jacks from 2011-14.

Christion is also the all-time leader in touchdown passes and total offense for the blue and yellow.

It’s not just team records that the Sioux Falls Roosevelt alumnus is shattering.

Christion is also the top touchdown passer in the
Missouri Valley Football Conference and total offense
leader.

“[He’s] an excellent football player in his senior year so you can imagine that he has even stepped his game up a little more,” University of Northern Iowa head coach Mark Farley said.

Entering the matchup with the Panthers, Christion is only 325 yards away from becoming the first Jackrabbit to surpass 10,000 passing yards.

If Christion should reach that mark, for him would be winning an FCS Playoff Semifinal game.

As the starting signal-caller for the Jacks, Christion owns a 27-9 record.
