Football: Upon further review, Mullaney set record

Thousand Oaks Coach Mike Leibin said he has reviewed video of all the receptions made by receiver Richard Mullaney and determined that Mullaney set a state record with 122 receptions this season. He had been previously credited with 120, one short of the record. Leibin said two receptions that were hook-and-lateral plays had not been given to Mullaney.

Mullaney had 1,703 yards and 20 touchdowns. The old record was held by receiver Steve Martinez from Los Angeles Wilson. Leibin will submit the record to Cal-Hi Sports.

Who cares...this is high school!


805 Represent. T.O. was all run until about 1999. Good to see a new breed of skill position players coming from the Lancers (see Dave Anderson). Eat your heart out Westlake.


Who cares what it's called! Richard set a new state receiving record that had been on the books for 33 years. He is one of the humblest young men you'd ever meet. Congratulations.


Rowdie: that is incorrect. When said fast, it sounds like hook and's not a hook and ladder and when called that, it's wrong. Yust like the saying, "it's a hard row to hoe".: Many say road to hoe, which makes no sense....just like hook and ladder makes no sense. "Known as" is wrong.


Good for you mpg. It is a "hook and lateral" but it's known as the "hook and ladder".

Atta boy, coach! Way to go to bat for your players!


No such thing as hook and ladder. It's hook and lateral. The receiver runs a hook pattern and laterals the ball.
