Valencia running back Manuel White set the record for career rushing yards with 6,704. Those yards were racked up from 1996 through 1999.
White also holds the record for touchdowns in a game with seven, a feat he achieved in 1999.
Jake Rice rushed for 289 yards against Canyon in 2016, the first of many surprises West Ranch had in store last season.
In that same game, Rice rewrote the record for touchdowns in a game with four.
LaRon Huff has succeeded Rice since his graduation and rushed for 173 yards in the Wildcats’ season-opener this year.
Saugus High’s David Parker holds four different records. He set three in 1999: passing yards in a game (380), passing yards in a season (3,234) and passing touchdowns in a season (42).
The record for passing yards in a career also belongs to Parker, who threw for 5,451 yards overall.
Golden Valley running back KJ Maduike took the Grizzlies to new heights in the ground game, rushing for 1,412 yards.
He also broke the record for most rushing TDs in a game with 13.
This season, DJ Turner said he’s looking to surpass that number.
“He got 1,412 yards last year and I’m trying to beat it,” he told The Signal in August. “I’ve got it memorized.”
Canyon’s longest-standing record belongs to Ed Williams, who ran for 4,037 yards in a varsity career that spanned from 1991 to 1993 — well before any current Foothill League athlete had been born.
One of many Hart quarterback greats, Kyle Boller had 59 passing touchdowns in the 1998 season. At 4,841, he also set the record for season passing yards in 1998.
Boller was named the CIF-Southern Section Division 4 and State Player of the Year in 1998, which was also the year that the Indians won a CIF-SS Division 4 title.
