Compiling 426 yards would be considered an excellent game from a quarterback.  For a running back? That’s a sensational performance. If a running back tops 1,000 yards in a season, he might make a Pro Bowl. Dallas (Ore.) RB Tanner Earhart got nearly half that in a single game, adding seven touchdowns. The Dragons put up 65 points on North Eugene.

For his efforts, Earhart leads the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Performances of the Week.

Below are the rest of the top performances as fall sports continue across the nation:

Samantha Hall, girls volleyball, Hurley (Mo.)

Hall has been a consistent defensive force for Hurley all season, and she put up big numbers again in a 32-30, 25-11 win over Crane.  The libero tallied 30 digs.

Drake Fullum, football, Harpeth (Tenn.)

It’s been a banner week so far for running backs. Fullum put up numbers that could be considered performance of the week-worthy. Harpeth defeated Hickam County, and Fullum gashed Hickam’s defense to the tune of 388 yards and five touchdowns, all on the ground.

Briana Garcia, girls volleyball, Clear Falls (Texas)

Clear Falls defeated Cico Ranch and Clear Brook last week, and the junior outside hitter played an instrumental role in both wins, recording 50 kills.

Drew Stout, football, Carson City-Crystal (Mich.)

Stout was a running back last season but switched to quarterback over the summer. The switch has paid off, as the dual-threat athlete excelled in the passing game and on the ground in a 50-18 win over Montabella. The sophomore threw for 352 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for 108 yards and three touchdowns on seven carries.

Harry Kane, a striker for Tottenham Hotspur, scored 25 goals in the Premier League last season, winning the golden boot (the award given to the top goal-scorer). The Premier League has a 38 game season. Allen has 22 goals so far this year with five hat tricks in seven games. She scored six goals alone on Aug 30. Through September 6, Allen is averaging 3.1 goals per game and she scored 21 goals as a junior.

Jashaun Corbin, football, Holy Trinity (Fla.)

Corbin was a difference-maker in all three phases of the game as Holy Trinity defeated Harvest Community 55-17.  The running back ran for 202 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries, ran a punt back 80 yards for a score, and intercepted a pass on defense.

Butare Rugenerwa, boys cross country, Amarillo (Texas)

Rugenerwa has only run in two cross country meets in his career so far and he’s won both of them. Rugenerwa posted a time of 16 minutes and 47.2 seconds in the Allen Invitational Meet at Thompson Park—a good seven seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Kathryn Bond, girls soccer, St. Paul Academy, (Minn.)

St. Paul defeated Nova Classical 8-0 and Mounds Park 9-0 last week and Bond played a large role in the blowout wins. The senior forward scored six goals and had one assist in the two games.

Conor Bardue, football, Lake Stevens (Wash.)

Bardue threw for 221 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-7 win over Arlington. Lake Stevens built such a commanding lead that Bardue wasn’t needed for the 4th quarter.
