IHSA - Turns out the biggest beneficiary of Kapri Bibbs' 520-yard game against Oswego on Friday is DeAndre Hooper.

Hooper's 593-yard rushing performance for Austin High in 1996, brought to light because Bibbs was thought to have broken the state record last week, will be added to the Illinois High School Association record book, according an IHSA official.

Listed as the sixth-highest total in the national record book, the omission of Hooper's 593 yards against Near North appears to have been an oversight, the IHSA told the Tribune. For 24 years, the single-game rushing record in Illinois was listed as belonging to Billy McClure of Maroa-Forsyth, who ran for 498 yards against Niantic-Harristown.

Bibbs rushed for 520 yards and seven touchdowns in a 49-43 win over Oswego.
