The weather on Friday night was perfect for a running back and with sophomore ball carrier Hunter Prince only 155 yards away from the school’s single season rushing record it was safe to assume Prince was going to see plenty of carries, as he has all season. The Bulldogs led the Holgate Tigers 22-0 at halftime with Prince totaling 100 yards on the ground at that point.

Prince continued to close in on the record as the third quarter progressed, scoring his second touchdown of the night on a four-yard run to make it a 30-0 game. Prince then broke off a 47-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter to break the record previously held by Dusty Everetts, who was in attendance, of 1.531 yards set in 1997.

Prince finished the game with 174 yards and now has 1,550 yards on the season entering this week’s home playoff game against Tiffin Calvert on Friday.
