A few weeks ago, Santa Ynez quarterback set the school single-game record with six touchdown passes in the 41-7 win over Templeton.

That record is no longer standing. Because Gregg broke it Friday night. Neither is the season mark.

Gregg threw seven touchdowns in the Pirates' 54-0 blowout win at Morro Bay. 

Gregg completed 17 of his 20 passes for 356 yards and seven scores. He's now thrown 24 touchdowns on the season against just two interceptions.

The 24 touchdown passes this season also set a single-season mark for the school. Santa Ynez graduate Mike McCoy set the school record last year with 23 touchdown tosses. 

All of Gregg's passing stats came in the first half as the game was played with a running clock in the second half.

Gabe Prendergast caught eight passes for 170 yards and four touchdowns. Travis Vreeland added four grabs for 100 yards and two touchdowns. 

Prendergast also broke his own school record Friday night with the four touchdown catches, setting the school's single-game record. 

More importantly, though, may be Prendergast's career record: With 2,157 total receiving yards in his career Prendergast is now the school's all-time leader in that category. Prendergast breaks David Scroggin's (1989-91) mark. Scroggin went on to play wide receiver at Princeton.

Trey Duus also had a receiving touchdown and a rushing touchdown.

The Pirates are now 6-0 on the season and are scheduled to take on Cabrillo Friday night.
