Beck's record-setting night carries Dalton
DALTON, Ga. (WRCB) -- Tre Beck already owned the Dalton single-game rushing record, but the number apparently wasn't to his liking.
After setting a new all-time school mark a year ago during his sophomore season, Beck broke his own record Friday night with a 315-yard performance in the Catamounts' 42-10 win over Ringgold in the Friday Night Football Game of the Week.
The record-setting night, which included a pair of long touchdown runs, earns Beck the Friday Night Football Subway Player of the Week honors for Week 8.
Beck carried just 16 times for an average of nearly 20 yards per carry. The junior tailback rushed for 294 yards in a win over Rome in 2009 to break Torrey Love's old mark of 240, but nearly had that total in the first half against the Tigers.
Dalton finished with 543 total yards of offense, 439 of which came on the ground.
Other standout performances from Week 8 of Friday Night Football were:
-- Calhoun's Dustin Christian rushed for 114 yards on just eleven carries, and returned a kickoff 91 yards for one of his four touchdowns in the Yellow Jackets 44-6 win over Gordon Central.
-- East Ridge linebacker Stefan Nelson recorded 27 tackles, 19 solo and 8 assists, in the Pioneers' 27-24 overtime win over East Hamilton
-- LaFayette's Devarus Porter rushed for 200 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown in the final minute to give the Ramblers a 19-14 victory at Heritage
-- Ridgeland's Paul Walton rushed for 139 yards and four touchdowns in the Panthers' 66-38 win over Southeast Whitfield
-- Signal Mountain's Andrew Price racked up 148 yards on just six carries, including a 77-yard touchdown run, to become the Eagles' first 100-yard rusher of the year in a 56-7 win over Eagleville
-- Marion County's Matt Zeman rushed for 156 yards and three touchdowns, threw an 11-yard touchdown pass, and added a two-point conversion in the Warriors' 57-7 win over Whitwell
-- Brainerd's William Hughes went 16-for-29 for 352 yards and two scores in the Panthers' 47-30 loss to Red Bank
