A lot of high school recruits put together careers loaded with statistical dominance and memorable moments, but there aren’t many who set county rushing records.

In just the third game of his senior season, five-star running back recruit Nicolas Singleton broke the all-time Berks County (Pa.) rushing record with 4,484 career yards on the ground and counting. Singleton and Governor Mifflin High School dominated Cocalico High School, 56-0, Friday night on the back of his 156 yards, five-touchdown performance on just 10 carries.

With 583 yards and 13 touchdowns already through the early portion of his senior season, Singleton is well on his way to another enormous season. As a sophomore, he rushed for 1,690 yards and 32 touchdowns on 180 carries, and as a junior, he rushed for 1,311 yards and 22 touchdowns on just 107 carries.

Singleton (6-foot-0, 210 pounds) is the 78th-ranked recruit in the nation, according to 247Sports, while rated as the sixth-ranked running back and second-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania. Rivals rates him as the 127th-ranked recruit in the nation, checking in as the eighth-ranked running back and the third-ranked recruit from Pennsylvania.
