The state’s all-time leader in rushing yards, touchdowns and scoring will be staying in-state.

New Palestine running back Charlie Spegal announced on Sunday night that he’s accepted a preferred walk-on position with Indiana.

The 5-11, 225-pound Spegal rushed for 3,168 yards and 55 touchdowns as a senior, including 160 yards and a touchdown last week as New Pal repeated as Class 5A state champions.

Spegal finished his high school career with 10,867 yards, 173 rushing touchdowns and 175 total touchdowns — all state records and was named Indiana Gatorade Player of the Year.
