School records in jeopardy

Nov. 13, 2004 - FRISCO - The further down the playoff road the Wildcats go, the more likely it is that more school records will fall.

SSHS sophomore quarterback Logan Turner is just 15 yards away from becoming just the second passer in school history to throw for 2,000 yards, and he has eclipsed the SSHS record for most passes thrown in a season. After passing for 304 yards on Friday, Turner now has thrown for 1,985 yards while completing 153-of-286 passes with 18 TDs and seven interceptions.

The school records, all set last year by Ryan Henry, are 181-of-278 for 2,417 yards and 19 TDs.

Wide receiver Rolaundo Wright is also nearing a record. With seven catches for 82 yards against Terrell, he now has 60 receptions for 915 yards, less than 100 yards off the school record of 1,010 yards on 72 receptions set last year by Kendall Wright.

Junior kicker Spenser Daniel has also booted six field goals in seven attempts. That is two shy of the school record of eight by Billy Watkins and Scooter Howard.
