Ayoob sets paper airplane record
Former Cal QB establishes record with 226-feet, 10-inch throw
Former Cal quarterback Joe Ayoob is now a Guinness World Record-holder -- for throwing a paper airplane 226 feet, 10 inches.
Ayoob set the mark Sunday at at McClellan Air Force Base outside Sacramento, Calif., eclipsing the former record of 207 feet, 4 inches.
As the Bears' QB in 2005, Ayoob was 5-4 in nine starts. He passed for 1,707 yards, 15 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. In his first start, at Washington, Ayoob was 17-of-27 passing for 271 yards and four first-half TD passes.
Later that season he passed for a season-best 284 yards and a TD and ran for three scores against New Mexico State. Against Oregon State, Ayoob became the first Cal player since Kyle Boller in 2002 to catch a touchdown pass, run for a TD and throw a touchdown pass in the same game.
After graduating, Ayoob played three years with the Central Valley Coyotes and Tri-Cities Fever in af2, which was the Arena Football League's developmental league.
Ayoob is now a sales rep for Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco.
