Starkville High School football coach Jamie Mitchell said in the preseason that junior running back Jacquez Horsley might be asked to run the football 20-25 times for his offense.
It took more than that on Friday night for the Yellowjackets.
Horsley had 37 carries for Starkville in a 34-14 victory over the Southaven Chargers at home.
In a career night, Horsley took it upon his shoulders to provide enough production to keep the Jackets going on offense. He had 194 yards rushing and 40 yards receiving for 234 yards of total offense.
Horsley is proving to be the durable player Mitchell is looking for in the running game.
