Joe Clancy put together one of the most prolific offensive seasons in the annals of the Northeast-10 Conference last fall, tossing 31 touchdown passes while averaging 394.5 passing yards per game.

It was the best season by a quarterback at Merrimack College, ever.

Until this season.

With three games left in the regular season, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound fifth-year senior from Newburyport is rewriting the record books — again — while positioning himself for a possible professional career.

His 34 TD passes are more than any Division 2 quarterback in the country, as are his 2,950 passing yards (402.3 yards per game). He has completed 65.4 percent of his passing attempts, with just five interceptions.
