Glassboro’s Corey Clement made more history Saturday, moving past 5,000 career rushing yards in a 59-6, nonleague win over visiting Salem.

Clement, who has committed to play at the University of Pittsburgh, ran for 236 yards and five touchdowns on 11 carries.

The senior, who has 5,164 yards in his career, became the fifth back in South Jersey history to break the 5,000-yard mark and passed Kingsway’s Gary Fauntleroy for fourth all-time.

“He's got incredible vision on the field and is a good, strong runner,” Glassboro coach Mark Maccarone said of Clement. “He's the total package with everything he brings on the field.”

Next up for Clement is Paulsboro’s Isaac Redman, third in South Jersey history with 5,255 yards. Ocean City’s Kevin Sinclair sits atop the list with 5,380 yards in a career that ended in 1996.

Clement is second in South Jersey this season with 1,242 yards, trailing only Wesley Hills of Wildwood, who picked up 266 yards in a 32-20 win on Friday against Schalick and has 1,536 yards this season.

The two backs made history on Sept. 28. After Hills set a South Jersey record with 452 yards at Maple Shade, Clement ripped off 476 yards at Gloucester to break the short-lived record.

Last season, Clement set a South Jersey record with 2,510 yards.

Glassboro has four regular-season games left on its schedule.
