    Passing on a Record

    The fix was in: One high school coach agreed to let the rival team score a touchdown; the other coach agreed to let the rival's quarterback complete a record-setting pass. But the quarterback didn't want to set a record by cheating.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- A high school quarterback has asked officials to erase his record-setting pass because his coach had made a deal with the opposing team to let him complete it.

    Nate Haasis' Springfield Southeast High School team let Cahokia High School score a touchdown late in Saturday's game, which Cahokia won 42-20. In exchange, Cahokia made no effort to keep Haasis from completing a 37-yard pass that gave him a record.

    In post-game comments Saturday, both coaches acknowledged arranging the deal during a time-out.

    The completion gave Haasis 5,006 yards for his career, setting a new record for the Central State Eight Conference and making him one of 12 Illinois high school quarterbacks to pass for more than 5,000 yards.

    But in a letter to the president of the conference, Haasis asked that the pass be stricken from the record books.

    Stupid coaches. Classy kid.

    Yea, I heard this on the radio. Pretty weak...i mean, obviously the kid is a good quarterback, who says he couldn't have completed it on his own. Then again, great publicity for him...
