From Cardinal Gibbons football coach Steven Wright:
Donovan Shepard rushed for 539 yards on 19 carries (28.4 yards per carry) and 6 TDs in 3 quarters of play.
(New coming in on Friday night, October 22, from HSOT and Nick Stevens, by way of WRALSportsFan.com.)
This is a new NCHSAA state record for rushing yards in a game. It breaks the previous record of 510 yards set by Northern Guilford’s T.J. Logan in 2012.
**********T.J. Logan, the former Northern Guilford Nighthawk running back, and he set his record vs. Charlotte Catholic in the 2012 3-AA State Championship Game…T.J. scored eight(8) touchdowns in that game, and we were there calling/announcing the game from the old Groves Stadium/BB&T Field, home of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons…We were calling/announcing the game on GreensboroSports Radio….T.J. Logan running hard for the Northern Guilford Nighthawks, Elijah Hood, running hard for the Charlotte Catholic Cougars…**********
