Now that Eric Frees has added the Western Maryland College rushing record to his resume, he's prepared to step up his assault on the state mark for yards gained in a career.
A junior from Ephrata, Pa., Frees gained a career-high 240 yards on 32 carries in a 24-0 whipping of Franklin & Marshall last Saturday. In the first quarter, Frees pushed past the old Green Terrors career mark of 3,022 yards, set by Joe Brockmeyer in 1969-72, and finished the day with a three-year total of 3,249.
In 27 games, Frees has averaged more than 120 yards. Using that gauge, he should get the state record of 4,179 yards held by Navy's Napoleon McCallum in the fifth game of his senior season.
