Record Breakers (Ryan Toelle & Devin Tohm)

Bookmark and Share

They may not be Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, but Sisseton stars Ryan Toelle and Devin Tohm are South Dakota's equivalent to any great quarterback-receiver combination.

"They've been playing football together and basketball, baseball since they were in elementary school," said Sisseton Head Football Coach Scott Hagen.  "So they know each other and they have a lot of confidence in each other."

Both players are record breakers and have put up numbers that any sports fan would marvel at.  Quarterback Ryan Toelle, for instance, set a state record, throwing for 611 yards in a one point playoff win over West Central last season.  It was the ninth highest passing total ever in the entire nation.

"That night we were just in sync from the start, clicking on all cylinders," said Toelle.  "Our wide receivers catching the ball, I was throwing it up and letting them go get it."

"If you would have been at the game you would have said, yeah, Sisseton threw for a lot of yards," said Hagen.  "I was thinking 350 yards at the time, but to throw for 611 yards was kind of unreal."

Meanwhile, one of Toelle's targets, wide receiver Devin Tohm, set his own record this year.  Tohm has racked up more receiving yards than any other player in state history.

"He just goes up and gets the ball.  Whenever I'm in trouble I just look for him," said Toelle.

"Usually when you get Devin the football good things happen," added Hagen.

"I didn't know I broke anything.  I didn't know I was close until they announced it during the game and said I broke it," said Tohm.  "I looked around for a second and then I got back to defense."

With the playoffs starting soon, these two only have a few high school games left to play together.  And it would seem they have nothing left to accomplish.  But the stars in Sisseton hope to align one more time as the Redmen look to add a state title to their long list of achievements.
