HIGDON, Ala. — The Fyffe Red Devils defeated the North Sand Mountain Bisons, 42-26 on Friday night and broke a few records in the process. Coach Paul Benefield chalked up his 275th win and Senior Running Back, Payton Anderson broke the Fyffe school record for most rushing yards in a single game. Anderson finished with 363 yards for the night and scored four touchdowns, making his career record a total of 103 touchdowns.
