The 5-foot-11 senior put together one of the strongest single-game performances in William Campbell history last week, rushing for 400 yards and seven touchdowns on 25 carries. He could have scored nine TDs, but one was called back because of a penalty, and WC then downed the ball at the goal line at the end of the game against Nelson.

He ran a 17:31.06 to win by roughly two seconds over Forest’s Jed Dudley.
