Tyler Evans of McLeod West ran for a stunning 7,503 yards in a career that ended in 2001. It’s a state record that, at first glance, seems unbreakable. Or is it?
BOLD (6-0), ranked No. 3-1A, has been dominant this season behind the play of Hudson Vosika, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound freshman who has run for 1,238 yard and 19 touchdowns. With two games remaining in the regular season and an extended playoff run likely, it seems reasonable to project Vosika to reach close to a mind-boggling 2,000 rushing yards.
Of course, running room will be decidedly more difficult to find against No. 7-2A Kimball Area (6-0), which has two shutouts and has allowed just 25 points all season. Senior quarterback Lucas Jansky is a dual threat as a passer or rusher.
