Have a season Thomas Tyner of Aloha (Ore) High School.
Tyner celebrated his 18th birthday with 643 yards rushing on 38 carries with 10 TD's...by himself as his team rolled over Lakeridge 84-63.
Yes, it was football, not basketball.
In case you are wondering, Tyner has 1,230 yards rushing...in 3 games this season.
Words cannot describe, so read about it from the Portland Oregonian RIGHT HERE
We can only assume the Oregon recruit is being steeped in the same offense he'll play in next year for Chip Kelly.
This also reinforces the stereotype that nobody plays defense in Western Football. All the props due to Tyner for putting up Madden-like numbers, but come on. There's no way anybody can say either of these teams played defense.
And in case you are wondering, no, he didn't set a national record, that one is held by John Ginanntonio of New Jersey with 754.
Oh, that was done back in 1950.

There is nothing like a creepy clown overlooking a drunk Oregon Ducks female fan during a game. The fan reactions behind them is pretty interesting. Have at it. H/T Deadspin
They're hardly hurting for talent at the moment, but the Oregon Ducks would seem to have already addressed any needs at running back in the near future.
Beaverton, Ore., Aloha High star Thomas Tyner drove home that point on his 18th birthday when he rushed for 643 yards and 10 touchdowns in an 84-63 victory over Lakeridge on Friday.
Tyner, a 6-foot senior, has already said...
For players, a tuneup game is a chance to play football. The stadium is loud and the adrenaline flows. The opponent doesn't really matter, Athletes relish the chance to compete and show what they can do, to play the game they've loved since they were little kids. The most joyous moments happen when the little kid comes out. Just playing, celebrating a touchdown, carried away...
Today I was alerted to a piece on The Classical that takes a look at how Oregon starting quarterbacks as “system players” under Chip Kelly and his highly specialized offense don’t really amount to much after leaving Eugene. This, as an Oregon alum and a huge Ducks fan, was obviously something that appealed to me, and I enjoyed reading it. Here is essentially the column’s...
Eugene – “A work in progress,” is how Chip Kelly described his team after the Ducks recorded a 63-14 win over Tennessee Tech of the Ohio Valley Conference. The over-matched Golden Eagles played valiantly but Oregon’s speed and talent was too much, particularly in the form of De’Anthony Thomas. Thomas scored twice and had 222 yards of all-purpose yardage.
