Yulee (Fla.) High School running back Derrick Henry broke the national career rushing yards mark Friday night, according to ESPN.com.

Henry set the record during a playoff game against Perry (Fla.) Taylor County with a 52-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

The previous record of 11,232 yards set by Ken Hall stood for 59 years. Hall accumulated his total for Sugar Land (Texas) from 1950-53.

Henry, who is committed to Alabama, needed 102 yards entering Friday to break Hall's record.

In 10 regular season games this year, Henry ran for 3,270 yards with 44 touchdowns. He was not held under 200 yards in a game.

Henry ran for more than 100 yards in all 45 high school games he played. He set the state's single-game rushing record this year with 510 yards against Jacksonville Jackson.

He ranks seventh all-time with 143 touchdowns.
