SPOKANE -- Gonzaga Prep running back Bishop Sankey is the new Greater Spokane League career rushing leader.

Sankey ran for --- yards and -- touchdowns in Thursday night's ---- win against Mead at Joe Albi Stadium. Sankey passed Tyree Clowe's mark of 3,937 yards with a nine-yard carry in the second quarter. Sankey also became the first player in league history to run for more than 4,000 yards in his career.

Clowe, who starred for Central Valley, set the all-time rushing record in 1998. That means he held on to the mark for nearly 12 years. The only other players to gain 3,000 career yards are East Valley's Scott Campbell (2001-2003), Lewis & Clark's Robert Barlow (1992-94), and Mead's Skylar Jessen (2003-05).

The Bullpups have one more game left in the regular season. They play Ferris next Friday at Joe Albi Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 8pm. Depending on how things play out on Friday (the undefeated Saxons play Lewis & Clark in the HS GameTime Game of the Week), there could be a league championship on the line.
