    Five-star running back Derrick Henry set the all-time career rushing record Friday, eclipsing the previous 59-year-old mark.

    Another week, another national high school record falls.
    Running back Derrick Henry broke the all-time record for rushing yards in a high school career Friday night on a dazzling touchdown run befitting of his stellar senior season.

    The Yulee High School (Fla.) star broke the previous mark on a 52-yard touchdown run with 11:15 remaining in the first half of Yulee's playoff game against Taylor County. The run brought him to 123 yards total in the game and 11,253 for his career.

    He looks like a young Marion Barber.

    He's listed as an athlete on Rivals. 6'3" 245? Defense might be his calling at the next level

    Not likely to remain a running back at the pro level and have a career longer than 6 years. If he does, he is one in a million. A few of those do [strike]make[/strike] succeed for more than five years in the NFL.

    thought he was committed to play linebacker at Alabama?
