Valentino cracks 4,000 yards

California High School's Donte Valentino became the first local player to eclipse 4,000 career rushing yards since 2000 after he rushed for 165 yards Saturday during a 33-6 win at Geibel in a Tri-County South Conference game.

Valentino has 4,052 career yards and already has 1,001 rushing yards this year. He became the area's first since Waynesburg fullback Lanfer Simpson finished with 4,010 yards. In an interesting sidenote, Simpson eclipsed the mark during the 2000 WPIAL Class AA championship game.
