Yes, Dylan Favre here, a junior at St. Stanislaus High in Mississippi, is related to Brett Favre. He's a nephew, and evidently pretty good, for his size. Favre the Lesser set the state's single-season record for TD passes at 43 last week in his team's regular-season finale, throwing for five scores in a 42-27 win over Poplarville. Will this Favre show up in the pros one day to eventually confuse us with shifting retirement plans? Hmm, he's only 6-foot, 185 pounds, and has no college offers so far. But he's thrown for more than 6,000 yards with 74 touchdowns the past two seasons, and has also shown toughness, starting at free safety for the Rock-a-chaws. Yes, that's their nickname.

Picayune coach Dodd Lee — whose team is ranked No. 7 in The Clarion-Ledger Super 10 — was impressed by Favre in the Maroon Tide's 56-28 victory three weeks ago. "He's very poised for his age and has a good, competitive spirit about himself," Lee said. "He's got good arm strength and he's hard to hem up. He does a lot of good things — and if St. Stanislaus could run the ball a little more, he could be even more dynamic."

Here's his Myspace page, and some game video. I see him battling one day for the 49ers starting spot with Nick Montana and Trevor Gretzky. Younger Favre Sets Mississippi State Record [Gator Bait] Another Favre Legacy Hatches In Mississippi [The Big Lead]
