Baker (FL) RB Kayleb Wagner Breaks Florida High School Football Record

One of the most talked-about high school football records in recent memory has officially been broken.

A record long held by former Yulee High School (FL) star and current Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, Baker High School (FL) junior RB Kayleb Wagner set the new Florida High School single-game rushing record carrying the ball 25 times for 535 yards and six touchdowns in a 49-48 win over South Walton. Henry was the previous record-holder when he carried the ball 45 times for 502 yards back in 2012.

A three-sport athlete, Wagner is off to a phenomenal start to the 2021 campaign which now includes a record-breaking performance for a mark that some thought would never be topped.
