The Macks appear to be back, and Kevin Chillis is leading the way.
Chillis ran for five touchdowns and a Harvard Cup single-game rushing record of 429 yards as three-time defending Harvard Cup champion McKinley, which started the season 0-4, won its second straight game by routing Hutch-Tech, 40-6, Saturday at All High Stadium.
The total is also the sixth-best in Western New York history, behind Maryvale's Brooks Estarfaa (463 this year), Forestville's Larry Croft (458 in 1997), Dunkirk's Travis Maxwell (454 in 1997), Starpoint's John Donner (431 in 1989) and Turner-Carroll's Corey Graham (420 in 2002).
The previous top Harvard Cup game is believed to be the 343-yard game by Kensington's Kevin Jamison in 1987.
Chillis, who began the season at wide receiver, carried 26 times, including touchdown runs of 2, 70, 27, 66 and 60 yards. He had 15 carries for 252 yards and two scores in the first half as McKinley took a 20-14 lead. He ran for two touchdowns in the third quarter and one in the fourth.
"Kevin has such good field vision, peripheral vision -- he's just a running back," said McKinley coach Joe Dugan, who credited veteran senior offensive linemen Sharif Bosley, Larome Nuwbern, William Middlebrooks and Tilon Cheek."
Chillis had 354 yards on 22 carries last week as McKinley (2-4, 2-3) beat Hutch-Tech, 40-6.
