SEWARD, Neb. – By any measure, there has never been a more prolific passing offense in program history than the one featured by the 2022 Concordia University Football team. The combination of DJ McGarvie at quarterback and Korrell Koehlmoos at receiver has rewritten the school record book. Below is a summary of the new team and individual records broken during the 2022 season.
In his second year as a starting quarterback, McGarvie broke a 21-year-old school record for passing yards in a single season formerly held by Jarrod Pimentel (2,178). In 10 games, the Lincoln North Star High School product piled up 2,553 passing yards while also breaking season standards for completions (229) and attempts (388). With two years to go, McGarvie already owns school career rankings of fourth in passing touchdowns and fifth in passing yards (4,037).
A native of Pilger, Neb., and a First Team All-GPAC honoree, Koehlmoos put together the best statistical season ever by a Concordia receiver. He eclipsed program single season standards in every major category: receptions (95), receiving yards (1,024) and receiving touchdowns (12). He also rose to the top of the charts in career receptions (221) and career receiving yards (2,894). The career records Koehlmoos broke were previously held by Ross Wurdeman in receptions (168) and Jared Garcia in receiving yards (2,495). Koehlmoos became the first player in school history to surpass 1,000 receiving yards in a season.
As a team, the 2022 Bulldogs broke the school record for average total offense per game with a figure of 407.5. The previous best was 401.6 by the 2014 squad that was led by 1,000-yard rusher Bryce Collins. With McGarvie at the controls, new standards were also set for most team passing records, with the exception of touchdowns.
