A 289-yard run and five-touchdown game broke a longstanding football record for running back Jared Chisari, MS. ’25, last weekend.
On Sept. 30, the Gaels travelled to Toronto where they beat the York Lions 87-0. Chisari set a new Queen’s Football program record with five touchdowns in a single game. He also now holds the second-place spot for single-game rushing yards in Queen’s history.
“It’s an honour. There’s a lot of really great players up on that wall,” he said at a pre-game press conference. “It’s definitely a special moment to be a part of such a long history and a very cherished one. It’s really a great feeling.”
First established by Jim Young in 1964, the touchdown record was previously four touchdowns in one game. Since then, four players have tied Young’s record, including current running back Anthony Soles, ArtSci ’24, who tied the record last season.
This is Chisari’s second season with the Gaels. Last season he played eight games and had four touchdowns with 644 total yards. This year, at five games into the season, Chisari has scored seven touchdowns and 622 yards.
Chisari credits his team for helping him achieve such success.
“It definitely feels good to rush for that many yards but it’s really a team effort,” Chisari said.
