No one in Polk County football history has rushed for more yards than Angus Weaver.
The Wolverine senior became the school’s career rushing leader during the first quarter of Friday’s 40-26 loss to West Henderson, surpassing the previous mark of 3,221 yards held by Jamal Tanner.
In perhaps befitting fashion for Weaver, he broke Tanner’s record on a 2-yard carry early in the game, pushing a pile of tacklers forward on the first-down effort.
“Awfully proud of Angus Weaver,” said Polk County head coach Bruce Ollis. “That’s one of the silver linings tonight. We’ve got a kid who set a career rushing record for our high school and we’ll celebrate that later.
“He’d trade it all in for a (win), no doubt.”
Weaver finished the evening with 12 carries for 139 yards and two touchdowns and now has 3,348 yards for his Polk County career. He also caught a pass for 22 yards.
