It was a record-breaking run, day, season, and career for Yulee's Derrick Henry. With this 50+ yard TD run, Henry holds the high school record for all-time career rushing yards. Plus, a win doesn't hurt either. Yulee beats Taylor County 41-26.


Alabama running back commit Derrick Henry ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in the U.S. Army All-America Bowl on Saturday, showcasing the form that made him a key recruit for the Crimson Tide.
Henry also scored on a 2-point conversion to help the East team beat the West 15-8. When the decision was made to go for 2, Henry knew he could get in.
"I told coach I wanted the ball," Henry said. "I've been looking forward to this game more than watching Alabama play. This is the height of competition, and I wanted to show I can play."
Wide receiver James Quick announced that he'd stay in his hometown and play for Louisville, which is fresh off a Sugar Bowl win over Florida. Quick scored on a 34-yard touchdown pass from Jeremy Johnson for the East.
The West went ahead 8-7 with just less than seven minutes to go when Max Browne, a Washington state high-school passing record-holder from Sammamish, Wash., completed a 16-yard TD pass to Derrick Griffin. Browne, a Southern Cal commit, followed with a 2-point conversion pass to tight end DeSean Smith, who has committed to LSU.
