HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. -- As a sophomore, Jalen Hurd (Hendersonville, Tenn./Beech Senior) rushed for around 1,600 yards. Coming into his junior season, the talented running back set his goal a little higher, right around 2,000 yards.

After a 299-yard, two-touchdown performance in a win over Mount Juliet last Friday, Hurd now has more than 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns through five games. And the 6-foot-3 back rushed for 462 yards in one game. What has been the biggest difference?
