DUBOIS, Pa. -- Journey Brown took a journey all over a western Pennsylvania football field Friday night.
Brown, a running back for Meadville High School, broke the state record for rushing yards in a game, running for 722 yards and 10 touchdowns to help his team outlast DuBois 107-90.
Brown had 30 carries for the Bulldogs and approached the national high school rushing record of 754 yards, set by John Giannantonio of Netcong, New Jersey, in 1950.
"I'm tired," Brown told The Meadville Tribune. "I'm real tired. But it doesn't matter. I came to play for the team, not myself."
Meadville coach Ray Collins was more effusive in his praise of Brown's performance.
"He was absolutely unstoppable," Collins told the Erie Times-News. "He would hit a seam and would be gone. He ran away from the DuBois defense all night long. They were playing tough, but he was making moves out there and stutter-steps and cutting back.
"Journey was even cramping up in the second quarter, but he kept stretching and hydrating to get back in the game," Collins said. "He'd get in there and just take off. He was just in the zone."
Last week in a 28-7 victory over Fairview -- a game called at halftime because of lightning -- Brown had 151 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.
Also in Friday night's game, DuBois quarterback Matt Miller, a sophomore making his first start, piled up more than 500 passing yards by halftime and finished with 741, a Pennsylvania record for passing yards in a game, and 10 touchdown passes in the losing effort.
The national record for passing yards is 764, set by David Koral of Pacific Palisades, California, in 2000.
