Who says football is a complicated game? Not Ronney Jenkins of Hueneme High. Three simple plays accounted for Jenkins' county-high 2,152 rushing yards this season. Three simple plays enabled him to rush for a national record 619 yards in his final game, a 52-34 victory over Rio Mesa. Play No. 1: a pitch to Jenkins on which both guards pulled and he ran around end. Play No. 2: a counter gap on which Jenkins started one way before cutting back off tackle. Play No.

With one crushing hit from Rodney Harrison, one of the NFL's biggest bad boys, Ronney Jenkins realized he wasn't playing against Idaho State anymore.

The morning after Ronney Jenkins of Hueneme High set a national record by rushing for 619 yards was not much different from the game itself. "Nothing has hit me yet," he said. From a 93-yard scoring run on his first carry to a 15-yard scoring run on his last, Jenkins wasn't hit often in a 52-34 Channel League victory over host Rio Mesa. In 30 carries, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior scored seven touchdowns, four covering 79 yards or more.

The same Ronney Jenkins who chose to attend BYU, confident he could make his mark by running the ball at Quarterback U.--the alma mater of Steve Young, Ty Detmer and Jim McMahon.
