Oregon high school football player runs for 643 yards and 10 TDs
BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) Aloha High School running back Thomas Tyner set a state record with 643 yards rushing and scored 10 touchdowns in an 84-63 victory over Lakeridge High School on Friday night.
Tyner's rushing yards are third-most nationally for a prep player, behind John Giannantonio's record of 754 yards in a game for Netcong High School in New Jersey in 1950, and Paul McCoy's 661 yards rushing for Matewan High School in West Virginia in 2006.
The senior Oregon commit surpassed the state high school record of 508 yards rushing set last season by West Albany High School running back Jake LaCoste.
It was Tyner's 18th birthday.
