Nebraska running back scored state-record 50 TDs this year

By

Meet Jaylin Bradley. High school football fans in Nebraska are already familiar with him, the senior running back for Bellevue West who wreaked havoc across the Cornhusker State this fall.

Heading into Monday night’s Class A state championship game in Lincoln, he had already shattered the state’s single-game rushing record with 496 yards earlier this season. In the state title game, Bradley ran 36 times for 249 yards and five touchdowns in a 41-6 win over Omaha North. Those five TDs gave him an even 50 on the year – a state record.

The state title for Bellevue West, capping a 13-0 season, is also the first in the program’s history.

Even when he wasn’t scoring touchdowns, look at a couple of these cuts and try not to feel a quick pain in your own knee.

A two-star recruit according to the 247 Sports Composite, the 6-foot, 180-pound Bradley is sure to draw a bit more interest as signing day nears. According to the Lincoln Journal-Star’s Steven M. Sipple, Bradley is on the University of Nebraska’s radar.

A nice, even state record of 50 touchdowns can have that effect.
