Charlie Volker Runs for School-Record 328 Yards to Lead Rumson Past Lakewood

RUMSON – In his second game back from an ankle injury, Rumson-Fair Haven senior Charlie Volker turned in the best game by a running back in the history of the Bulldogs’ program to power a 33-12 nondivisional win over Lakewood on Friday night.

Volker had previously set the school record with 314 yards rushing in a win over Rahway in last year’s Central Jersey Group II semifinals on the Bulldogs’ way to a state championship.
