Will Howard Breaks Kansas State Passing Touchdowns Record

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Kansas State

Kansas State has a new leader in passing touchdowns with Will Howard moving past Josh Freeman with 45 career touchdown passes.

Howard had a dominant first-half performance against Baylor throwing for 141 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone. Howard led the Wildcats to the end zone on four straight scoring drives to give the Wildcats a huge lead in the first half.


Howard started off slow in his senior season before catching fire in the month of November. The Pennsylvania native crossed the 2,000 passing yard mark with his start against Baylor as Howard entered the game with 1,955 yards and a touchdown to interception ratio of 18 to eight.

Will Howard was listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index coming out of Downingtown West High School and became the first player ever to commit to Kansas State from the state of Pennsylvania. The talented quarterback was thrust into the starting lineup as a freshman in place of the injured Skylar Thompson where Howard struggled but showed some upside.

It took Will Howard throwing eight scores as a true freshman, one as a sophomore, 15 as a junior, and 21 through the first nine and a half games of his senior season to climb the list of all-time Kansas State greats. With two and a half games remaining, Howard has more time to raise his name even higher in the history books in Manhattan, Kansas.
