As his team enters the playoffs for his senior season, Rye quarterback Andrew Livingston is closing in on Section 1’s all-time passing records.
Livingston will enter Friday night’s Class A quarterfinal with 5,001 career passing yards. That puts him 468 yards shy of Briarcliff’s Rob Higle, who threw for 5,469 yards in four seasons (1999-2002).
Livingston has also thrown for 50 touchdowns, leaving him 13 shy of Higle’s career mark of 63.
Livingston has passed for 1,531 yards, 15 touchdowns and no interceptions in seven games as a senior. He needs just 469 yards to become the first Section 1 passer to ever compile back-to-back 2,000-yard seasons.
But perhaps the most impressive stats of all? Livingston has thrown just six interceptions in 31 starts and has a 25-6 career record. He took over the starting job as a freshman in 2011 after Rye started 0-3.
Livingston actually would have played one additional game as a sophomore but Rye’s non-playoff game against Arlington was canceled in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
