Fast forward eight years and Tupak is chasing the record books for high school football in South Dakota..
The night that Tupak broke the school record was also his senior homecoming, a moment he and his family will never forget.
The team just said yeah hand him the ball.
And scored it and the first thing I remember was when he said keep the ball. So I ran out, looked for my dad, and just threw it up to him and said make sure to keep that.
Leber had 61 career touchdowns when playing with Vermillion High School.
After graduating in , the record has not been broken. Leber also holds the state record with 5, yards yards. Going into week eight of the high school football season this year, Kpeyah has 4, yards.
So I can actually put a record up and let it last forever. Kpeyah hopes to play football collegiately, but is still weighing his options.
