EDIT: The following blog has been edited after the school's official stats were forwarded to sports editor J. Mike Blake. The school had Leatham down for more passing yards, more completions and more attempts than those originally reported. All changes are in italics and underlined.

His 50 attempts against Lee are tied for 15th-most in NCHSAA history.
So far this year, Leatham has completed 154 of his 262 attempts (58 percent) for 1,966 yards and 13 touchdowns.
