Greater Houston Digits
Each month, ESPN RISE finds the numbers to note around the country. Here are September's Digits from the Houston area:
3: New members of District 19-4A for the 2008-09 school year. North Forest and Goose Creek are first-year schools. Kingwood Park moves up from Class 3A.
3,350: Passing yards for Cy Falls senior quarterback Kolby Gray last fall. Gray, an ESPN RISE All-Area pick, totaled 32 TD passes against just five interceptions last season.
15:51.17: Time for Rayburn's Jose Ortega at last fall's Region III-5A boys' cross country meet, the fastest time by a freshman, regardless of classification, at any Region III competition. Ortega, now a sophomore, finished fifth at the regional meet.
