Henry finished the night with 482 yards and six touchdowns on 58 carries. He now has 11,612 yards and 148 TDs in his career.

Taylor had 213 yards and four touchdowns in a Class 2A regional semifinal win over Hialeah-Champagnat Catholic. From freshman year on, Taylor has 10,314 yards. He passed Toney Baker for fifth all-time.

While Henry adds to his new national record, Taylor needs 919 yards to move ahead of Hall for second place.
