Evan Hull is a name to pay attention to this season.

How do you get your name to stick with college recruiters? Well, one really good way to do it is by rushing for almost 400 yards in your season opener. 

That's what Maple Grove senior running back Evan Hull did on Friday night, piling up a bonkers 387 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Crimson to a 34-7 win over rival Osseo. 

Hull scored on runs of 70, 38, 1 and 7 yards while averaging a ridiculous 11.7 yards per carry. 

Last season, as a junior, Hull rushed for 2,174 yards and 19 touchdowns. He was held below 130 yards in a game just once. And believe it or not, the 387 yards he had Friday night isn't his career high – that came in a game against Roseville last year when he carried the ball 38 times for 397 yards and four scores. 

Hull was an All-State running back as a junior and he's received preseason accolades as an All-State player again as a senior from local media.
