The poor Sharks of Charles J. Colgan Senior High School (Manassas, Va.) never stood a chance. Penn State's four-star, and No. 2 nationally ranked all-purpose back Ricky Slade did absolutely anything he wanted on Friday night, as his team won 64-35. Slade's final stat line? Jaw-dropping: 353 yards rushing on 13 carries and 5 TDs, one 35-yard receiving touchdown, and two kickoff return touchdowns of 95 and 92 yards. That's EIGHT tuddies, and nearly 600 all-purpose yards BY HIMSELF.

The stats are other-worldly, ridiculous, absurd, obscene, whatever you want to call them. But the highlights are just as remarkable. Slade pulls away from secondary defenders, time after time after time. His speed is incredible, his quickness is terrific, and he even has tremendous hands. See for yourself, and be thankful this kid will be wearing Blue and White in 2018.
