NAIA FOOTBALL REGULAR-SEASON RECORDS

updated 8/22/07

 

Official football statistics began with the 1952 season and are based on information submitted to the NAIA. Beginning with the 1991 season, all individual and team statistics included games in the NAIA Championship Series. Official career records include players who played at least three seasons (in a four-year career) or two seasons (in a three-year career) or a minimum of two seasons. To qualify for a career record in a particular division, an individual must have played a majority of his career in that division.
