NASHVILLE — Perhaps the only disappointment in Corn Elder’s high school career at Ensworth was his inability to play well against Baylor.
He injured his ankle against the Red Raiders in last year’s Division II-AA state championship game.
He said he simply didn’t perform well in a regular-season game last season against the Red Raiders or in the 2010 state final.
Elder made up for it Friday night.
He rushed for 296 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead Ensworth to a 42-17 rout.
“This is one team I have never played well against,” Elder said. “I really wanted to come out here and change that tonight. My teammates knew how much it meant to me to have a good game against them, and they really helped me out a lot. The line blocked well and the defense played well.”
