The Rose Bowl wasn’t Jaxon Smith-Njigba’s 1st 300-yard game

In what will go down as an all-time Rose Bowl, Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba had a record-breaking performance, being named Offensive MVP after recording 15 receptions for 347 yards and three touchdowns.

Six of his catches went for at least 30 yards and his total receiving yardage is most in FBS bowl history, according to SI.

It’s a performance that will be remembered by diehard Ohio State fans and casual college football fans alike, but this isn’t Smith-Njigba’s first time breaking the 300-yard mark in a single-game.

In high school, the former five-star Rockwell (Texas) High School receiver hit that mark twice and flirted with it a handful more.

Here are some of his top performances in high school, in order of receiving yardage.
