    Clement, who set the South Jersey single season rushing record as a junior, now has 5,390 yards, topping the previous record of 5,290.

    Glassboro jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. The Bulldogs were up 14-0 at the half after taking the lead on a Clement touchdown run in the second quarter.

    Glassboro expanded its lead to 28 points entering the fourth quarter. GHS scored two times in the third, including once on a touchdown run by Clement.

    With the win the Bulldogs extended their winning streak to five games. Glassboro defeated the Rams 59-6 last week.

    Clement finished with three touchdowns on the night. One of the nation's Top 25 Big Backs, he has now scored 20 touchdowns on the season.

    The Bulldogs went into the matchup giving up only 16.4 points per game. The zero points that the Tartans ended with were well below their average of 19.5 coming into the game. Highland Regional came in surrendering 16.0 points per game this season. HR struggled against Glassboro's offense, which entered the game scoring 35.0 points per game.

    Glassboro (5-1) goes up against Pennsville Memorial in a non-conference game matchup next week, while Highland Regional (4-3) locks horns with Delsea also in a non-conference game.

    Clement remains committed to Pitt, but has recently visited Nebraska and Notre Dame. Wisconsin also appears to be in the mix for the 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior who rushed for 476 yards and seven touchdowns earlier this season.

    Dorian O'Daniel was just one of numerous top recruits that tuned in to watch "Broke", a documentary that aired on ESPN on Tuesday.

    On Tuesday night, ESPN debuted its newest 30-for-30 documentary "Broke," examining how many athletes have squandered their fortunes.

    If the tweets are any indication, it really resonated with the nation's top young football players.

    Recruits from the Class of 2013 tuned in and had strong reactions to the documentary.

    Here's a sample of their tweets:

    "The 30 for 30 was TOO real, definitely learned a lot!" - Eli Woodard, Ohio State commit

    "This 30 for 30, definitely makes you think." - Dorian O'Daniel, Clemson commit

    "Football players should be paid the most out of any sport... You're risking the most every day of your life."
    - Shane Morris, Michigan commit

    "I hope Antonio cromartie is watching this 30 for 30" - Ty Isaac, USC commit

    "I'm gonna keep my money right smh this show showing everything behind closed doors"
    - Corey Clement, Pitt commit

    Corey Clement, Glassboro

    Corey Clement had a night for the ages, rushing for 476 yards and seven touchdowns in a 45-23 Glassboro (N.J.) victory over Gloucester City.

    Clement was nearly unstoppable; his 476 rushing yards is the most in South Jersey history, according to Scott Chappelear.

    He achieved the total on only 15 carries, according to Glassboro statistician Vic Mangeney.

    Heading into his senior season, Clement was already the all-time single season rushing leading in South Jersey by gaining 2,510 yards and 36 touchdowns, breaking a record previously held by Ron Dayne.

    In three games this season, Clement has already rushed for 842 yards.

    In June, Clement gave a verbal commitment to Pitt. However, he continues to keep his options open and visit other schools.

    According to Glassboro head coach Mark Maccarone, Clement has visited Nebraska and intends to visit Wisconsin. He also spent last weekend in South Bend taking in Notre Dame's victory over Michigan.

  • Before bruising running back Ron Dayne was setting the all-time NCAA FBS rushing record, he was dominating competition around South Jersey, racking up 3,876 yards at Overbrook (Pine Hill, N.J.).

    The 5-foot-10 Dayne weighed an astonishing 270 pounds as a senior in 1996.

    While not quite as heavy as Dayne, West Deptford (Westville, N.J.) running back Gerald Towns-Owens is bowling over defenders with similar ease.

    The 6-1, 240-pound Towns-Owens made a splash as a sophomore for West Deptford, one of South Jersey's top small school programs. He rushed for 1,563 yards and 26 touchdowns, helping lead West Deptford to a South Jersey Group II section title.

    According to head coach Clyde Folsom, Towns-Owens is extremely advanced physically, describing him as a "very impressive young man with a major college body as a 15-year-old."

    Folsom said that both Rutgers and Boston College have made offers, with several others showing strong interest.

    The 2012 season could be a golden year for running backs in New Jersey. Towns-Owens, Corey Clement, and Jamuari Bogan, all heavily recruited players, are each likely to top 2,000 yards.

    Bogan, a U.S. Air Force Sophomore All-American, could approach 2,500 this year as a junior. He has already offers from Temple, Toledo, and UMass.

    One of the nation's top 2013 running backs, Clement is currently favoring Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Florida State.
