An Oregon running back ran for a state record 644 yards and scored 10 touchdowns on Friday night.

Aloha High School back Thomas Tyner also put up the third-highest single game total in National High School history. Tyner, a University of Oregon recruit, carried the ball 38 times in Aloha's 84-63 win over Lakeridge. Friday was also Tyner's 18th birthday. The previous record in Oregon was 508 yards set by West Albany's Jake LaCoste last season.

"The beginning of the game I saw in the guys eyes. We were ready to play," Tyner told the Oregonian. "They opened up the holes, I would've never done it without them."

Tyner scored on runs of 20, 41, 62, 60 and 65 yards in the first half.

He credited his offensive line calling it the "best in the state."

The national high school record for rushing yards in a game is 754 by John Giannantonio of Netcong, N.J. That record was set in 1950. According to the National High School Sports Record Book, Paul McCoy of Matewan, W.Va., ran for 661 yards in 2006.
