There is no doubt that Oregon Ducks 2013 running back commit Thomas Tyner is an incredibly talented player, but sometimes we forget just how dominant some of these high school players can be. Tyner reminded us of how many yards he can pile up, as he rushed for a whopping 384 yards with three touchdowns (all 45 yards or more) to help the Aloha Tigers defeat the Tigard Tigers 36-34 in a key 6A matchup.
Tyner sparked a comeback victory for the Warriors by rushing for an insane 251 yards in the third quarter alone, which is 65.4% of his total production in one quarter. What makes this more impressive is that Tyner’s rushing couldn’t have come at a better time, as the Tigers were up 14-7 at the half before 45, 73, and 74 yard touchdown runs by the top 50 recruit.
Three-star BYU commit Brayden Kearsley and the offensive line were terrific in allowing Tyner to take over the game and lead his team to victory. A four-star recruit, Tyner is clearly the top prospect in Oregon (No. 5 RB in the nation) and showed off that high-line four-star talent yesterday.
Despite the win, Aloha was outgunned offensively 539 yards to 446, but it’s all about the final score and the Warriors were able to hold off Tigard High at the end thanks to a monstrous third quarter from Oregon’s long-time RB commit. Thomas Tyner is the best recruit in the Ducks 2013 class thus far and is showing off his 4.3 forty speed.
And yeah, 384 rushing yards is insane. 250 in a quarter against Tigard? I can’t find a word to describe that.
