The Tiger senior came back from a season-ending injury in 2020 with a vengeance to engineer a powerful Frenship offense as a dual-threat quarterback with 3,088 total yards in 10 games, many of which he emerged as Frenship’s primary weapon on the ground. He ran for 733 yards and 14 touchdowns and when he went airborne, he was just as sharp – 166-of-245 (67.8%) for 2,365 yards and 25 touchdown passes compared to only 3 interceptions. In his last two games, Pharies rolled up 900 total yards and accounted for 12 TDs.
