Mid-Prairie senior Justin Schwartz not only celebrated a win in his final home game at Dwight G. Sattler Field in Wellman Friday, he celebrated a milestone. Schwartz eclipsed the 1,000 yard rushing mark late in the Golden Hawks 48-20 win over Albia in week 9. Schwartz finished the season with 1,015 yards on 200 attempts with 12 touchdowns. He averaged five yards per carry and his longest scoring run of the year was 23 yards. He had five 100 yard rushing games on the season. He was a workhorse for the Golden Hawks, finishing with a season high 38 carries in a loss to Iowa City Liberty in September. He saved his best for last, rushing for a season high 199 yards and a season best four touchdowns in the victory over Albia.
