Kieran Presley ‘13 RB - Amherst (MA) Football
Amherst (MA) running back Kieran Presely '13 exploded for a school single game record of 419 yards in a 42-20 win over Chicopee on Friday night.
"Honestly I didn't even know I had that many yards at the end of the game," Presley told New England Prep Stars. "My coach came up to me and told me and it took me by surprise. All night my line and the wide receivers were doing their job blocking and opening up huge holes for me to run through. I want to give them the credit for giving me that record.
Presley scored four touchdowns, ran for 359 yards on 21 carries, and grabbed three passes for 60 yards. Presley also had an interception and six tackles on defense.
"Those stats are as much there's as they are mine," Presley added.
Presley and Amherst are now 4-3 with a match-up at West Springfield coming up Friday night.
"I feel like our record doesn't reflect who we are as a team," Presley said. "We came out strong our first game and tried to slide by. After our few losses the team really felt like we were not showing our full potential and our coaches were stressing to us that every game is a playoff game because our schedule. We really took that to heart and it shows now with our two game winning streak."
