(ABC 6 NEWS) -- When a running back goes for 312 yards, one might think it's a fluke.
When he follows that up with 261 yards, it's a trend.
"You hear the term in sports all the time about being in the zone, and luckily, we've got one of our senior captains in the zone right now, and hopefully, he's still still feeling it as we head into the playoffs," Lourdes head coach Mike Kesler said.
Kane Carstens is saving his best for last. The Lourdes senior tallied 573 rushing yards in the Eagles final two regular season games, and he seems to be peaking at the right time, just as his team begins postseason play.
"Our team has been clicking, and my line has been giving me some great holes to run through," Carstens said. "I just have to turn on the boosters and go."
Making it extra special for Kane is the fact that his twin brother McKay is right in front of him, blocking on every play.
"It's great," Kane said. "We're just so tight."
McKay is the Eagles fullback, and while he gets several carries a game himself, his other job is to lead block for his brother.
"Two brothers on the field, working together. He's making the holes for me, and I'm just glad to run through it and make the touchdowns for him," Kane said.
"They don't care about stats," Kesler said. "They care about helping the team, number one, and whether it's his brother or not, that doesn't matter to him. He's going to do whatever it takes to help the team."
Kane has his team sitting pretty. The Eagles are the number one seed in Section 1AAA, and they have their sights set on a championship.
"We have to take it one game at a time, and work hard every game," Carstens said.
