When Novi football coach Jeff Burnside was informed that Nathan Hankerson had broken the school single game rushing record in Friday's 42-14 home victory over South Lyon East he reacted:

"Did he really? Wow, that's outstanding."

After three straight 100-yard plus games, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Hankerson shattered Emanuel Jackson's mark of 240 when he finished with 276 yards on just 20 carries and three touchdowns as the Wildcats evened their season record at 2-2 with the KLAA Central Division win.
