MALAKOFF — Cayuga Traylon Shead moves to third on the all-time Texas high school rushing list after rushing for 240 yards in a 58-6 win over Cross Roads Friday night.
Shead carried the ball only eight times for 240 yards and four touchdowns and did not come back in the second half as the Wildcats led 50-6 at halftime.
