It sure seems like there are a lot of famous football progeny running wild these days, so let's go ahead and add former Jaguars running back Fred Taylor to the list. Or, more accurately, add his Fred Taylor's son, Kelvin Taylor, to the list.

Kelvin, the running back for Glades Day in Palm Beach County, Florida, busted out a 426-yard rushing performance on Friday in a 35-24 win over Village Academy.

But that's not the craziest part. The craziest part is that it's his second 400-yard performance of his career, as he posted a 437-yard outing last November.

These 400-yard outbursts aren't just random though, because Kelvin's kind of a baller.

In fact, as Dieter Kurtenbach of the Miami Sun-Sentinel notes, Kelvin's only 655 yards away from breaking Emmitt Smith's all-time Florida high school rushing record of 8,804 yards.

And Kelvin's only a junior. So, yeah, Emmitt, sorry about that record. And maybe sorry about it this year too.

The younger Taylor also has a shot at the all-time high school rushing record as well, needing just a little more than 3,000 yards to catch Ken Hall's all-time record of 11,232 yards, which he set in 1953.
