Bernstine, who transferred to Bethel this season after previously playing at Vallejo High, broke the previous Northern California and CIF Sac-Joaquin record of 460 yards set in 1997 by Johnnie Randle from Bear Creek of Stockton. He also is now No. 2 on the all-time single game state list behind the 619 yards picked up by Oxnard Hueneme's Ronney Jenkins in a 1995 game. Jenkins' total also is the all-time national record.
With Bernstine leading the way, Bethel also rang up a team rushing total against Vintage of 678 yards. That sets a new NorCal mark as well, surpassing the previous record of 672 set in 1998 by Clovis West of Fresno. The state team record for most yards rushing in a game of 736 yards was set in 1992 by Life Christian of Downey.
