Anthony Welsh of Bethlehem-Center will likely run his way into the WPIAL record books Friday night.
Welsh, a senior, needs only 62 yards rushing to reach 4,000 for his career. He would become the 63rd player in WPIAL history to reach 4,000 yards.
With that in mind, here are some factoids about the 4,000-yard milestone:
* The first player known to reach 4,000 yards was Jerry Patterson of Chartiers-Houston, who graduated in 1970 with 4,075 yards.
* Welsh would be the second Beth-Center runner to reach 4,000. Keith Miller, a 1997 graduate, ran for 5,121.
