To say that Aloha High School senior running back Thomas Tyner had a good game against Lakeridge (OR) High School would be the understatement of the century.

Tyner last night ran for a state record with 643 yards and ten touchdowns in Aloha’s 84-63 win against the Pacers where it appears that defense left the building sometime in the first half.

Here are just some of the interesting facts that surround his record-breaking performance:

-> He demolished the previous Oregon high school yard mark set by Jake LaCoste of West Albany in 2011 with 508 yards

> At halftime, Tyner had 362 yards and five touchdowns

-> Six of his touchdown runs were over forty yards, three of them over sixty yards

-> Coming into the game, Tyner had 584 yards and seven touchdowns. After it, he had 1,228 yards and seventeen touchdowns

-> In high school sports history, it is the third largest rushing day ever (The largest being 754 yards by Netcong High School’s (NJ) John Giannantonio in 1950)

-> It was Tyner’s 18th birthday

In case you’re wondering, who is the lucky school that gets Tyner’s services next season? The University of Oregon.

    Maybe they should have him play defense, too, since they gave up 63. And why the heck does an Oregon high school have a Hawai’ian greeting for its name?

      It’s not prenounced like the greeting. It’s pronounced A-lo-UH – Drop the “H” – I live in the area so I’m just sayin.

    In other news, 2 high school football Defensive Coordinators were fired following Friday night’s slate of games. Ironically enough, one worked for Aloha High School, the other for… oh heck, you get the idea.
