It was an historic night at Southern Door last Friday as Eagles running back Nick Baudhuin rushed 37 times for 403 yards and six touchdowns in the school's 39-14 win over Crivitz.

The 403 yards broke former Packer and NFL player Jim Flanigan's single-game school record set back in 1989, while the six touchdown's also tied Flanigan's single-game record.

The junior running back had no idea in the moment he was making history.

"Right after the game, walking off the field my mom came up to me and said hey you officially broke Jim Flanigan's record and I'm like there's no way. It didn't feel real; it didn't even feel like that happened," Southern Door running back Nick Baudhuin said.

"It's nuts because what he accomplished, how successful he was on the college level and professional career."

"There's a great school history at Southern Door and running backs have been quite a few high level players. For Nick to join that upper echelon is pretty exciting," Southern Door head coach Ryan Zuehlke said.

"You knew he was getting up there for touchdowns but we weren't sure of the yardage and we were happy pull him with one yard to go or so something so we weren't dialed into it but happy he made that accomplishment."
