Trayone Gray leads Carol City in shut out of Killian


Special to the Miami Herald

The Chiefs dominated their season opener against the Cougars, stifling Killian at Traz Powell Stadium.

Chiefs quarterback Trayone Gray led the Wing-T offense, throwing for one touchdown and running for another in the victory.

He finished the game with a modest 53 yards passing, but rushed for 138 yards on seven carries.

“He has the ability to turn a normal run into a big play,” Chiefs coach Aubrey Hill said of Gray. “We wanted to run the ball early, and he had a great night for us. Every win gives us confidence and helps us grow as a team.”

After jumping out to a 14-0 lead at the half, defensive back Rashard Fenton opened up the second half with bang, splitting the Cougar special teams for a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

The Cougars struggled to gain traction against the Chiefs, totaling 161 yards of total offense but never coming close to sniffing the end zone or having a scoring opportunity.
