Paul McCoy of Matewan High School in West Virginia ran for 10 touchdowns and 658 rushing yards this past Friday as his team beat Burch High 64 - 0.
Outside of scoring machine Paul McCoy
is in desperate need of a kicker, but then with 10 touchdowns from one player does it really matter?? ;-)
Oh yeah, he
also had one additional touchdown run of 77 yards called back because of a penalty; bummer.
Unfortunately for Mr. McCoy
(yeah, he's Mr. McCoy
after that performance) that may not be a new record:
"The total tops the National Federation
of State High School Association's
listed record of 619 yards set by Ronney Jenkins of Oxnard, Calif., in 1995.
But high school records historian Doug Huff said Saturday the recognized record is 739 yards by John Giannantonio of Netcong, N.J., in 1950, against Mountain Lakes."
Record of not Mr. McCoy
had a VERY good day this past Friday and you have to not only admire his
accomplishment but feel very good for him; what a player!
