Furlong notches 1st 100-yard game in college

Soldotna’s Brenner Furlong reached a new level in his college football career with his first 100-yard rushing game Saturday for Dakota State University. Furlong racked up a career-high 119 yards on 17 carries in the 30-18 loss to Valley City State in Madison, South Dakota.

The 2018 SoHi grad pushed his 2019 rushing total to 245 yards, following a freshman campaign that saw him reach 107 yards. The 17 carries were also four short of his career high set last year.
