But what happened Saturday in Westchester went beyond hyperbole. Gowins, a junior running back, rushed for a career-high 298 yards and three touchdowns on 18 attempts as St. Anthony's ran past host Stepinac, 31-14.
Gowins' big day was the second-best rushing performance in program history. Only former Penn State star Matt Hahn has had a bigger day for the Friars when he ran for 352 yards against Holy Trinity in 2003.
Gowins averaged 16.5 yards per carry against Stepinac, which included a 94-yard breakaway that gave the Friars a 28-14 edge early in the fourth.
