Nov. 23, 2004 - With the Wildcat football season coming to an end, several players made their mark on the school record book.

They are:

Rolaundo Wright

The senior wide receiver wound up his career as the top pass catcher in SSHS history.

In his two-year varsity career, Wright grabbed 102 passes for 1,550 yards and 11 TDs. All three of those marks surpass records previously held by Aaron Givens (96 receptions), Keith Jarvis (1,351 yards) and three players with nine TD receptions each.

He also set the mark for most yards receiving in a single game with 246 yards against Greenville.

In single-season receiving, Wright ranks right behind former teammate Kendall Wright.

Rolaundo caught 69 passes for 1,000 yards and eight TDs this year. All three marks rank right behind Kendall's 72-1,010-9.

Chris Person

The junior running back ended the season with the highest per-carry average in SSHS history (minimum 50 carries) by averaging 7.52 yards (1,151 yards on 153 carries).

That broke the previous high of 7.49 yards by Eric Thurman in 1989.

Person's single-season total is also the eighth-best in school history. Torio Kelly's 1,771 yards in 1994 is still the school record.

Person also set a record for the longest run from scrimmage in school history with his 97-yard TD against Forney. It surpassed the 92-yard record set by Jay Clayton in 1998.

Logan Turner

The sophomore quarterback racked up 2,138 yards and 18 TDs passing, which is second all-time in school history, and he became just the second SSHS passer to throw for more than 2,000 yards.

Ryan Henry holds the single-season record with 2,417 yards and 19 TDs last year.

Turner broke the single-season mark for most attempts in a season with 326 (breaking Henry's 278 mark) and fell just short of most completions with 176 (Henry had 181).

His 319 yards passing against Greenville is fourth all-time in a single game.

Keenan Clayton

The senior kick returner set a new school record with his fourth career punt return for a touchdown.

He had seven returns of various kinds for touchdowns the last two years.

Keelan Green

The senior kick returner tied a school record with his 90-yard punt return for a touchdown against Forney, and he ranks second all-time in highest punt return average in a single season with 17.3 (277 yards on 16 returns).

That 17.3 mark, though is first in career average (minimum 10), surpassing the 16.1 average set by Terry Mosley in 1991.
