Cy Falls duo getting it done

While Cypress Falls (Texas) hopes to contain Michigan verbal commit Sam McGuffie of Cypress-Fairbanks this Thursday on national television, the Eagles have two offensive playmakers who also give opposing defensive coordinators nightmares.

Senior running back Shane Turner has been impressive, rushing for 842 yards and 14 touchdowns, leading Cy Falls to a 4-2 record. It has also led to four Division I offers from the likes of Arizona, Utah, New Mexico State and most recently Fresno State.

"He has had a great senior season," Cy Falls coach David Raffield said. "He got his last offer from Fresno State and I know he's starting to set up his official visits. He's great in the classroom also. He's kind of waiting for some academic schools like Stanford and Northwestern to offer him, but he's very open right now."

The biggest surprise for Raffield has been the play of junior quarterback Kolby Gray who has thrown for 12 touchdowns and zero interceptions.

"Kolby is the best quarterback I've had here," Raffield said. "He's tremendously competitive, he got a big, accurate arm and is deceptively fast. He's still growing and will be a major Division I prospect next year. He's getting a ton of mail right now."

At 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, Gray has displayed his versatility during his tenure at Cy Falls playing receiver before becoming the Eagles' signal-caller.

"As far as being recruited, I think he'd like to stay close to home," Raffield said. "But he'll have a lot of choices."
