PRESTONSBURG – Earlier in the month, during a non-district home game versus Hazard, Prestonsburg running back Dalton Frasure surpassed 4,000 yards in his high school football career. Frasure will have an opportunity to rush for over 5,000 yards, possible even 6,000 yards, before his prep career is over.
“Dalton Frasure went over 4,000 yards rushing for his career during the home game versus Hazard on Sept. 18,” Prestonsburg Coach John DeRossett commented. “We want to congratulate him and his teammates for such an outstanding accomplishment. I would say that is the all-time rushing record for our school. I just hope he gets 6,000.”
Through the first four games of his senior season, Frasure had rushed 110 times for 642 yards and seven touchdowns. The Prestonsburg senior had also hauled in seven pass receptions for 110 yards and three TDs
As a junior in 2014, through 13 games, Frasure rushed 245 times for 1,614 yards and 20 touchdowns.
During his sophomore season in 2013, Frasure rushed 209 times for 1,240 yards and 22 touchdowns in 13 games. Frasure led Prestonsburg in both rushing and ranked receiving during his sophomore campaign, reeling in 48 catches for 537 yards and four touchdowns.
