Mark Ingram to Trent Richardson to Eddie Lacy to Derrick Henry. The very recent tradition of superlative Alabama Crimson Tide running backs continues with the kid who broke the all time high school rushing record.
Henry ran for 482 yards on Friday night against Perry (Fla.) Taylor County to bring his career total up to 11,612 yards.
He broke the record of somebody you’ve never heard of. Next year Henry brings his talents to Tuscaloosa.

Each week the Alabama coaching staff selects players of the week from the previous game. The Crimson Tide had a relatively easy time of it last Saturday with a 49-0 win over Western Carolina and starters did not get a lot of playing time. The Bama coaches took note of the men in the trenches for most of the honors.
Alabama’s offense scored the first six times it got the football and the defense also contributed a touchdown; and even with the game shortened by running the clock after incomplete passes in the second half and Bama playing back-ups more than half the game, the Crimson Tide had an easy time of it Saturday.
QUICK HITS: After two tough weeks in a row (LSU, Texas A&M), the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide got some active recovery this weekend by shutting out the Catamounts.
Alabama junior guard Trevor Releford had been a mystery non-starter through the first three games of the season. He got his first start of the year in the finals of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Wounded Warriors Project in Madison Square Garden in New York Friday night and responded with an MVP performance in leading Bama to the tournament championship.
Alabama’s 49-0 win over Western Carolina was the Crimson Tide’s 10th victory of the season. It is the 32nd season in Bama football history in which 10 or more victories have been recorded, second best in history to Oklahoma, which has 33 not including this season.
