Derrick Henry breaks Alabama’s single-season rushing record

Alabama running back Derrick Henry is certainly a special player for his team. The Crimson Tide is one win away from the SEC Championship and being in the College Football Playoff once again and it’s mostly because of Henry’s pure ability to run the ball.

Entering Saturday’s Iron Bowl against Auburn, Henry needed just 153 yards to tie Trent Richardson’s single-season rushing record for the Crimson Tide. In the third quarter of the 29-13 win, Henry did just that as he eclipsed 155 yards and surpassed Richardson for the record.

Henry went for 271 yards on the day and now sits at 1,797 yards for the season. He will certainly add on to that as he takes his Heisman campaign to Atlanta on Saturday for the SEC Championship game against Florida.
