Jorrion Wilson: Running Into The Record Book

Jorrion Wilson broke a 24-year-old school record on Friday night when he ran for 348 yards.
Jorrion Wilson didn't know what was going on.  He knew he was having a good game, but he didn't know that he was running his way into the Permian Panthers' record book.

"I didn't realize it until later on," said Wilson.  "The big boys up front were moving people around for me and opening everything up."

Wilson ran for 348 yards breaking Shawn Crow's old single game mark of 304.

Wilson made five trips into the end zone, which tied a school record.

His touchdown jaunts included runs of 76, 4, 80, 18 and 34.

"It was awesome seeing him run away from everyone and shedding blocks, it was pretty cool," said Permian right guard Landon Weeden.

In true fashion Wilson brushed off his big performance saying, "I was just glad we were winning."

Wilson excels off the football field as well.  He has a 4.0 GPA and is a varsity basketball player.  "School doesn't come easy, but I like a challenge," says Wilson, "I just work hard and do the best I can, I want to be the best at whatever I do."

So far, that plan seems to be working.
