A record-breaking performance gained Hickory High junior running back Cody Young the Oldies 101.3 FM WNNC Coca-Cola Golden Helmet Award for Week 10 of the football season.
He also won the award in Week 9 after rushing 13 times for nearly 200 yards and scoring five TDs as Hickory won 68-21 over West Caldwell on the road.
Last Friday night, Young rushed 31 times for 361 yards in the Red Tornadoes’ 55-54 home win over South Caldwell and broke the school single-game rushing record previously set by Jahiz Linebarger.
Young also tied another school record, becoming only the third player in school history to rush for seven TDs in a game. Pinkie James did that in 1928, and Darrien Burch did it in 2007.
Update: The Week 8 winner was Desmond Anderson of Bunker Hill, a wide receiver/quarterback/defensive back who led the Bears to a 37-20 victory on Oct. 5 over Draughn for their first win of the season.
Anderson for three scores and threw for two others as Bunker Hill handed head coach Patrick Clark his first career victory.
