TULSA, Okla. - Sevion Morrison got the record he was looking for with ease Friday, and Edison won its game with archrival Memorial easily as well in the MidTown Classic.
Morrison broke Spencer Tillman's career Edison rushing record on his second carry of the game and finished with 96 yards and two touchdowns on just five carries to lead No. 8 Edison to a 67-0 victory over Memorial Friday night in Class 5A action at LaFortune Stadium.
"It actually means a lot to break somebody's record who was so good and so talented in the sport I play," said Morrison of Tillman. "Wednesday night he came to my school told me to go out and break it today. He really just pushed me to do it."
