96 players hit 1,000-yard mark

Millard North quarterback Isaac Aakre won the state rushing championship by 2 yards.

Aakre finished with 2,295 yards in 12 games to edge Class B leader James Kruger of Norris, who had 2,293 in 13 games.

They head the list of 96 players who rushed for 1,000 yards or more, as chronicled since 1975 by Grand Island high school sports enthusiast Bobby Mills.

Mills said there were a record 11 sophomores to top 1,000 yards.

Aakre and Kruger are three-time 1,000-yard rushers, as are Luke Glenn of Shelton, Alec Galvin of Burwell, Jac Bailey of McCool Junction and Jacob Morrill of Creighton. Morrill, a junior, can become the third player in state history to be a four-time 1,000-yard rusher.

Millard North, Fort Calhoun, Norfolk Lutheran Northeast, Falls City Sacred Heart, Loup City and Hastings St. Cecilia each had a pair of 1,000-yard runners.

In passing, a record 62 1,000-yard performances have been reported. Jake Findley of Giltner, with 3,903 yards in 13 games, set the state yardage record. His favorite target, Kyle Hawthorne, topped the list of four 1,000-yard receivers with 1,473.
