Evan Tewell just had to be patient last Friday.

The Jefferson High School senior running back was 57 yards away from becoming the school’s career-leader in rushing yards, heading into the regular-season finale against cross-county-rival Washington High last Friday night at Shenandoah Junction. 

It could’ve happened early in the game. Instead, it was a slower process as Jefferson was using a balanced attack on its way to a 41-17 win over the Patriots. But on his first carry in the fourth quarter, needing just one more yard to set the record, Tewell broke a 12-yard run, on a toss-back play from quarterback Dylan Harich, setting off a huge celebration, both on the sideline and in the bleachers.
