Area prep football record book gets a rewrite

The page in the area high school football record book for single-season totals underwent a rewrite this season. Here's a look at the top 2011 additions:

(Regular-season only)

-- South running back Kareem Hunt rushed for 2,289 yards and scored 240 points. Both are the best totals in those categories.

-- Mentor quarterback Mitch Trubisky set the area record for passing yards with 3,085. He's also second all-time in completions (196), fourth in attempts (305) and fourth in touchdown passes (31).

-- Ben Josipovic of North had 68 receptions, good for third all-time in that category.

-- Cameron Kavan of Mentor had 66 catches, putting him right behind Josipovic in fourth. He's also the third player to go over 1,000 yards in receiving in a regular season (1,037).

-- Danny LaRosa of Ledgemont scored 216 points, third-best in area history. He also became the fifth running back to go over 2,000 yards in a season (2,031).

-- South's offense gained 4,788 yards, second-best all-time (the 2010 Rebels are first). Mentor this year is third at 4,725.
