Matt Adams broke a 45-year-old single-game school rushing record Friday night, gaining 316 yards on 29 carries. The previous mark was set by Rich Riffle, who had 264 against Kiski in 1963. "Everybody that I've seen since Friday has been congratulating me. It feels good, real good," Adams said.

A : I really want to go on and play football in college. And I would like to play pro football.
Q: People may be surprised to know that ...
A : I like to read non-fiction. But they have to be either books in a series or sequels.
Q: What are your post-high school plans?
A : Go to college. I don't have a specific one, but I want to go to one down South. Good weather, lots of good schools.
