Walled Lake Western's Darius Taylor etched his name in the school record books with an incredible performance in the Warriors season opening 47-26 win over defending Lakes Valley Conference champion, South Lyon.

The University of Minnesota bound senior rushed for 345 yards and 6 touchdowns, which set new single game program records.

Taylor and the Warriors will now prepare for their home opener on Thursday, September 1, when they meet rival Walled Lake Northern in the annual Battle of the Wall. Western had won 9 of its last 10 games against Northern. The Knights lone victory during that stretch came in 2020.
