Aloha High School running back Thomas Tyner set a state record with 643 yards rushing and scored 10 touchdowns in an 84-63 victory Friday over Lakeridge High in Beaverton, Ore.
Tyner’s rushing yards are third-most nationally for a high school player, behind John Giannantonio’s record of 754 yards in a game for Netcong High School in New Jersey in 1950, and Paul McCoy’s 661 yards rushing for Matewan High School in West Virginia in 2006.
The senior Oregon commit surpassed the state high school record of 508 yards rushing set last season by West Albany High running back Jake LaCoste.
It was Tyner’s 18th birthday.
