NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Der­rick Henry sped and stiff-armed his way to a record-ty­ing 99-yard touch­down run and the Ten­nessee Ti­tans routed the Jack­sonville Jaguars 30-9 on Thurs­day night to stay in the play­off chase.

And that was just part of an amaz­ing night for Henry.

Henry tied Tony Dorsett’s 99-yarder on Jan. 3, 1983, for Dal­las against Min­nesota for the long­est TD run in NFL his­tory. Henry ran to his left and ran up the side­line, stiff-arm­ing first Jaguars cor­ner­back A.J. Bouye, then rookie line­backer Leon Ja­cobs twice and fi­nally a shove to line­backer Myles Jack to fin­ish off the TD.

The 2015 Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner, cel­e­brated by strik­ing the Heis­man pose not once, but twice.

Henry set a fran­chise record with 238 yards on just 16 car­ries, top­ping the pre­vi­ous mark of 228 yards set by Chris John­son in 2009 against yes, the Jaguars.

Henry fin­ished with a ca­reer-high four TDs, ty­ing Lorenzo White and Hall of Fame run­ning back Earl Camp­bell for most rush­ing TDs in a sin­gle game in fran­chise his­tory. Henry

Ci­bola boys bas­ket­ball made a state­ment Thurs­day at home against Gila Ridge (0-3 AIA).

The Raiders (3-0 AIA) held a high-pow­ered of­fense in check to win 58-41 af­ter a stout de­fen­sive ef­fort.

Ci­bola led through­out the game and built as big as a 20-point lead at the end of three quar­ters at 48-28.

“We played hard, which is the to­tal op­po­site of Tues­day, where we won, but we didn’t play hard,” Ci­bola coach Ron Brat­ton said. “It was good to see the kids come to­gether. They talked on de­fense, shared the bas­ket­ball, and they just played hard. It looked like they like each other.”

Se­nior guard Derek Barnes was tasked with shad­ow­ing Gila Ridge’s Jami­son Kay all night, and that helped the Raiders keep Gila Ridge to only 41.

Barnes also led on of­fense with 10 points and three as­sists, ju­nior Quan­nah Locklear had 11 points and se­nior Glenn Bax­ter had six points and six re­bounds. Gila Ridge was led by Sam Miner with 15 points and Kay with 14 points.
