Shelton RB Ralph Kinne could set school's single-season rushing record Friday
Shelton High School senior running back Ralph Kinne could set the school's single-season rushing record Friday when the Highclimbers travel to face Lincoln -- and it's only Week 6.Kinne, a 5-foot-11, 210-pounder, is the state's leading rusher in 11-man football with 1,439 yards through five games. In last week's 43-8 win over Foss, Kinne ran for 269 yards on 27 carries and scored four touchdowns. The school's current single-season rushing mark is held by Kyle Burbridge, who ran for 1,657 yards in 2007, so Kinne is only 218 yards away from setting the mark. That year, Shelton advanced to the preliminary round of the state playoffs. Should Kinne set the record Friday, he'd be the fastest to do so in school history (six games). Burbridge set the record in 10 games during the 2007 season.
