Polk County's Angus Weaver rumbles through the Draughn defense during Saturday's win

Weaver reaches 2,500 career yards; Beiler tops 1,500-yard mark

Polk County junior running back Angus Weaver surpassed 2,500 career rushing yards Saturday during the Wolverines’ 30-0 win at Draughn.

Weaver moved past the 2,500 mark with his 16-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter. He added another touchdown in the second quarter and finished with 120 yards on 12 carries.

It marked the 10th time that Weaver has rushed for 100 or more yards in a game in his Polk County career. The most recent two have come with Weaver sporting a large cast covering a fracture in his left hand.

“He’s the best one-handed player in Western North Carolina, no doubt,” said Polk County head coach Bruce Ollis. “Hes the kind of guy you want on your football team. I’m glad we’ve got him.”

Weaver now has 2,585 yards for his career. Jamal Tanner holds the Polk County career rushing record at 3,221 yards.

Polk County quarterback Casey Beiler also moved past 1,500 career passing yards, throwing for 173 yards to up his career total to 1,668 yards.
