Yulee (Fla.) High School running back Derrick Henry entered Friday evening needing just 102 rushing yards to pass Ken Hall for the national career-rushing yards record. Not only did Henry smash that mark with 482 yards on the ground off of a whopping 58 carries, but he also scored six touchdowns as well. He now has 11,612 yards and 148 TDs in his illustrious prep career.Henry, a bruising 6-foot-3, 238-pound senior is currently committed to play football next season at the University of Alabama."Breaking this record means a lot to me," Henry said. "I'm glad I could share it with my coaches, my teammates and all of Yulee. They all helped me get to this point. I don't think it will really hit me until I'm done with football."The man who previously held the rushing record, Hall, boasted the title for nearly six decades after wrapping up his high school career with Sugar Land (Texas) High School in 1953. Henry's stats are simply mind-blowing. He has ran for more than 100 yards in all 45 games in which he has played at Yulee. He has ran for 3,752 yards and 50 scores during the 2012 campaign alone. And not once has he been held under 200 yards in a single game this year.Yeah, I think the Crimson Tide are getting a good one.Via ESPN.
