  • Rolla High School career rushing leader Cameron Fore, currently of the Benedictine (Kan.) football team, captured both the NAIA and Heart of America Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors for his record-setting performance in last week's 62-37 victory over Avila University last week.
    Fore, a senior running back, rushed for 236 yards on 21 carries and scored a school-record six touchdowns.
    His 36 points established a new single-game NAIA high.
    The performance also set a pair of Benedictine single-game records, for rushing touchdowns and for points scored.
    Fore actually shared the previous single-game TD record with Don Brown (five). Fore and Brown also shared the previous single-game points record.
    It's the second time in three years Fore has been named NAIA Offensive Player of the Week.
    So far this season Fore has rushed for 14 touchdowns, giving him 86 points, which ranks No. 2 on the Raven's all-time single-season list.
    After six games this season Fore has rushed for 816 yards (7.9 yards per carry) as the Ravens are 6-0 overall, 4-0 in league play and ranked No. 5 in this week's NAIA National poll.
    Fore, who played at Rolla High from 2006-08, set the Bulldogs' career rushing record with 3,215 yards as well as the career touchdowns (43) mark. He is also tied for first in career rushing TDs (39) and has the single-season record for rushing TDs (27 in 2008).
