The Brett Favre story playing out in Minnesota this season is one of the great ones in all of sports.

It might be the second-best story in the Favre family, though.

Meet Dylan Favre. He is Brett's nephew. Everybody knows that. Everybody wants to talk about that.

Everybody but Dylan, that is.

"People make it out to be way bigger than it really is," Favre said. "He's just an ordinary uncle who goes to work every day. His job just happens to be playing football."

Nearly a quarter-century ago, Uncle Brett was a wishbone quarterback who had a nice little career at Hancock North Central High School, where the coach (his father, by the way) ran a wishbone offense and threw the ball about five times a game. It was good enough to get Brett -- who played some lineman, strong safety and punter too -- a scholarship to Southern Miss.

We all know what happened from there.

Dylan Favre's time at St. Stanislaus in Bay St. Louis, Miss., has been a little less anonymous; and not just because of his famous last name. Dylan, 17, played his final prep game last weekend, leading his team to a 35-16 victory over Lafayette County for the Class 4A state championship, passing for 369 yards and three touchdowns, and rushing for 51 yards and two more scores to pile on his record-shattering career numbers.

"I could care less about records," he said. "My senior year was all about winning a state title."

On his way to achieving the latter, check out the former:

-- In 2009, Favre accounted for 81 touchdowns, the most in the history of high school football; any state, any level. He amassed 6,797 yards from scrimmage (or 453 per game), good enough for second all time. His 5,539 passing yards were the fourth-most (Note: he eclipsed 500 yards in three games, and threw for 498 in another); his 63 touchdowns placed 10th all time.

-- For his career, Favre finished with 170 total touchdowns (that's third-most by a player in the nation), 14,205 total yards (fifth), 13,509 passing yards (fifth) and 144 touchdowns (eighth). He's 10th in completions (751) and attempts (1,237).

-- Oh, and he was Mississippi's Gatorade Player of the Year.

Now, comes perhaps the most eye-opening statistic.

One Division I-A scholarship offer.

From Southern Miss, no less.

Despite the mind-numbing digits, the ones most college scouts apparently are most focused on are the ones that say Dylan Favre is just 5 feet 11 (maybe) and 180 pounds.

Hence, the lone offer.

"I'm not just a quarterback, I am a football player," Favre told reporters following the state title game. "I play with passion and I play with heart, and if college coaches can't see that then maybe college ball isn't meant for me."
