From the beginning of his freshman year, Miami Hurricanes QB Brad Kaaya has been the man for the Canes’ offense. He’s started every game of his career save one, which he missed due to concussion. And, in those 37 starts, Kaaya has set to breaking all kinds of records.

Late in the 3rd quarter against Duke on Saturday, QB Brad Kaaya broke Ken Dorsey’s record for most passing yards in a career for the Miami Hurricanes.

The record came on a beautiful over the shoulder throw to WR Stacy Coley, who beat his defender clean and made the easy catch to seal the record.

With 9,603 yards, Kaaya stands alone atop the Career passing list for Miami. He broke Ken Dorsey’s record of 9,565 with the pass to Coley.

Kaaya either owns or is approaching most of the major records for Miami Hurricanes QBs. When you look at the lineage of that position at Miami, with greats such as Jim Kelly, Vinny Testaverde, Steve Walsh, Bernie Kosar, and the aforementioned Ken Dorsey, attaining a record such as this is a major, major achievement for Kaaya.

Congrats on the record, Brad.

Here’s to you breaking many more.
