It's official: Journey Brown's 722 yards in national record book

By

The Meadville (Pa.) football rushing attack and back Journey Brown are now officially in the national high school record book.

Through the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, the National Federation of State High School Associations has verified that Meadville posted 1,004 rushing yards in its 107-90 victory against DuBois and that Brown ran for 722 yards, according to Chris Boone, from the NFHS.

The 1,004 yards is a national record. The 722 rushing yards ranks second.

Here is a look at the page that includes Brown on the Federation web site:

Boone said for records to be included the school needs to supply an application that the state association needs to verify before the records are included.

The PIAA is awaiting word from DuBois about its records from that game. DuBois sophomore QB Matt Miller threw for 787 yards and 10 touchdowns in his first varsity start. That yardage when confirmed would be a national record.
