Interlake running back Jordan Todd set the state’s single-season rushing record on Saturday. Todd ran for an unofficial total of 331 yards in a 55-28 loss to No. 1 Lynden in a Class 2A state quarterfinal. That brings Todd’s season total to 2,741 yards, smashing the mark of 2,676 set by Ferndale High’s Matthias Wilson in 1997.

Interlake coach Jason Rimkus had this to say about Todd in this story:

“I’ve never coached anybody like Jordan,” he said. “I’ve never seen such a humble, outstanding kid as Jordan Todd. I’m got to miss him as a person a whole lot more than I’m going to miss him as an athlete, and he was an exceptional athlete.”
