In one of the most decorated high school football careers of all time, Hillcrest High School's Dorial Green-Beckham has achieved nearly every personal honor possible.

But there is one more statistical plateau now in site for the mega-recruit wide receiver: The nation's career record for receiving yards.
Green-Beckham sits 369 yards short of Abram Booty's career record of 5,867 set in 1996 for Shreveport Evangel Academy in Louisiana, according to the National Federation of High Schools record book.
If last week was any indication, the Rivals.com top recruit in the nation could near the record this week.
Green-Beckham racked up 354 yards last week in a 40-19 win against Rolla, setting a single-game state record.
Hillcrest (6-1) will play host to West Plains (0-7) at 7 p.m. today with a chance to wrap up an outright Ozark Conference championship, the team's first since 2001 and seventh in school history.
It's also the opening of Class 4 district play for Hillcrest. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Hornets made their debut in the state poll this week, checking in at No. 9.
Marshfield plays at Republic in the other Class 4 District 10 matchup.
