Notre Dame Football commit Kedren Young showed once again why the Fighting Irish want him among their stable of backs as he set a career record.
The Notre Dame Football team has quite the commit in running back Kedren Young. The 4-star Texas running back prospect committed back in June and he’s been solid for the Fighting Irish ever since.
The Notre Dame Football team got a glimpse into what he’ll be bringing to South Bend over the course of the season as he put up one stellar performance after another. That included his performance over the weekend that wasn’t just stellar but record setting.
Young not only helped his Lufkin High team stay in contention for the Texas State Playoffs with a 48-17 win, but he set the school record for career rushing yards. The Notre Dame Football commit now has 3,912 career rushing yards.
The man who previously held the record at 3,767 yards. That record stood for 19 years as Jorvorskie Lane played for Young’s high school from 2002 to 2004. Yes, that Jorvorski Lane.
After setting the record for Lufkin, Lane was a touchdown machine for Texas A&M. In 2006 and 2007 he had a whopping 35 rushing touchdowns for the Aggies. He then went on to play three years as a fullback in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Bucs.
Notre Dame Football commit is in good company
On Friday night, the future Notre Dame Football star ran for 169 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 14 carries. He did all of that in just three quarters, thanks to the fact that he’d broken the career rushing mark and his team had a big lead.
Young is certainly an interesting get for the Fighting Irish, considering they ventured into Texas to get the 4-star prospect. Notre Dame Football won the commitment of the running back over schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and a host of powerhouse programs.
