Tyler Tenner breaks Wisconsin rushing record, approaches 7,000 career yards

By

There’s a new state rushing record-holder and his name is Tyler Tenner.

Tenner, a senior running back for Racine Lutheran, broke the record for career rushing yards in Wisconsin high school football by rushing for 237 yards in Friday night’s 55-7 Level 2 playoff win over Cambridge.

Tenner sits at 6,903, including 2,286 on the season.

The previous record of 6,870 yards was established by Iola-Scandinavia’s Bryce Huettner. Tenner entered Friday night needing 205 yards to eclipse Huettner.

The record was broken during a 9-yard scamper off the right side in the third quarter.

Tenner was among the state leaders with 2,275 rushing yards as a junior as the Crusaders reached the Division 6 state championship game, which they lost to Huettner’s Iola-Scandinavia team. Tenner took over the starting role as a sophomore and ran for 1,830 yards in 11 games.

As a freshman, Tenner received 70 carries and took them for 512 yards.

The Crusaders meet St. Mary’s Springs in Level 3 game Friday and Tenner will have a shot at breaking the 7,000-yard mark.
