Tupak Kpeayeh of Sioux Falls Washington Breaks Career Rushing Yards Record
Last Updated by
Tupak Kpeayeh is alone at the top in South Dakota when it comes to rushing yards for a high school career in 11-man football. During the quarterfinal playoff game between Watertown and Sioux Falls Washington on Thursday night, Kpeayeh needed just 86-yards to break the record.
The record was broken in the first quarter, when Kpeayeh broke free...
Kpeayeh passed Jason Leber of Vermillion, who ran for 5,305 yards from 1990-1992. Jason Leber is the oldest brother of former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Ben Leber.
Along with holding the record for most-rushing yards in 11-man football history, Kpeayeh also holds the all-time record in career rushing attempts, career touchdowns, and career rushing touchdowns – for 11-man football.
More importantly, Sioux Falls Washington was victorious on Thursday night against Watertown with a final score of 49-14. Next Friday, Sioux Falls Washington will take on the number one seeded Sioux Falls Roosevelt Rough Riders, a team who snapped the Warriors 35-game win streak earlier in the year with a 29-0 shutout.
The winner between Washington and Roosevelt will play the winner of Brandon Valley and Sioux Falls O’Gorman in two weeks at the Dakota Dome for a state championship.
