Florida High School RB Breaks All-Time Rushing Record

Derrick Hall high school career rushing record, commits to AlabamaKen Hall set a national high school record for career rushing yardage, when he amassed 11,232 yards in Sugar Land, Texas, from 1950-53. His record survived until last Friday night, when running back Derrick Henry (Yulee, Florida) topped Hall's total on a 52-yard touchdown run in the state playoffs.

Yulee is a town of 11,000, located north of Jacksonville.

The 6-3, 240-pound Henry has rushed for more than 100 yards in 45 consecutive high school games, while averaging 341 yards per game this season.

Earlier this year, he passed NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith on the prep career rushing list.

Hall originally committed to Georgia, but flipped his commitment over to Alabama in September. Ironically, the two schools meet on Saturday in the SEC championship game at Atlanta.
