Hines leads the county

Gryphon junior Mason Hines
What a coming out party it has been for Rocky Mount junior running back Mason Hines.

After three games, he is the leading rusher among Nash County's high school teams. 

Hines has piled up 515 yards rushing on just 57 carries and has scored five touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff for 76 yards and a score in the Gryphons' season-opening win at Bunn.

Although he didn't get into the end zone, he helped set up two touchdowns as he ran for a career-high 188 yards Saturday in Rocky Mount's 28-22 victory at Hertford County.

Now the home folks will finally get to see him play when SouthWest Edgecombe comes to the RMAC Friday night.

Here are Nash County's top rushers thus far this season: 

Mason Hines (jr.), Rocky Mount - 57 car., 514 yds., five TDs
Terron Huffman (sr.), Southern Nash - 47 car., 466 yds., six TDs
Tracey Coppedge (sr.), Southern Nash - 44 car., 319 yds., four TDs
