04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Chiefs picks: Round 6/182 - Cyrus Gray, RB, 5-10, 198, Texas A&M...Gray put up back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Aggies and brings a jack of all trades history and mentality to the Chiefs backfield. His ability to run, catch, back, return and cover in the kicking game will increase his roster chances. - The Sports Xchange

03/08/2012 - Satisfied with his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, Cyrus Gray was relegated to a Yell Leader for most of Texas A&M's Pro Day. "That's always been me," the DeSoto native said. "I'm everybody's biggest fan and biggest supporter. I know those are my brothers, and that's what we do -- help them out like we do in a game. On Wednesday, Gray did the long shuttle and participated in position drills. Otherwise, he stood on the sideline in his sweats, as the 12th Man, rooting on 11 Aggies teammates, including receiver Jeff Fuller. Gray and cornerback Coryell Judie, however, are the Aggies' top prospects outside of Tannehill. Gray could go as high as the third round after back-to-back, 1,000-yard seasons. "He's a good kid," Green Bay Packers scout Alonzo Highsmith said. "He's a tough kid. He's been a good player for all his years in college, very competitive. He catches the ball. He does everything well. That's what I like about him." At the combine, Gray ran a 4.47 at 206 pounds, did 21 reps in the 225-pound bench press, broad-jumped 9 feet, 6 inches and had a 32 1/2-inch vertical. He was disappointed with two dropped passes, which is why he chose to do position drills Wednesday. "My biggest thing was to show those guys I can catch the ball," Gray said. "I think I had a real good day." - Charean Williams, The Fort Worth Star Telegram

12/31/2011 - Scouting the Texas A&M running game: Injuries severely limited what had been one of the strongest one-two rushing combinations in the Big 12. RB Christine Michael was lost for the season with a knee injury, leaving RB Cyrus Gray to handle the workload exclusively. Then Gray went out with a shoulder injury, though he may be able to recover in time to play in the bowl game. Without that duo, A&M must turn to RB Ben Malena, a sophomore with just 44 attempts. - The Sports Xchange

12/10/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL SECOND TEAM (COACHES): RB Cyrus Gray, Texas A&M, Sr., has been selected All-Big 12 Conference Second Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. - Texas A&M football

11/23/2011 - The backfield tandem of Christine Michael and Cyrus Gray was considered the best in the Big 12 when conference play unfolded, yet now both players could be sidelined for the Thanksgiving night clash against Texas. Michael is out for the season with a torn ACL he sustained on Nov. 5. Gray handled the rushing chores exclusively and gained 218 yards in a Nov. 12 loss at Kansas State. He then strained his shoulder in the Nov. 19 win against Kansas and is questionable. That leaves A&M with two scholarship running backs. Ben Malena will start against Texas if Gray cannot play, while backup Will Randolph is a backup whose redshirt was burned against Kansas. - The Sports Xchange

11/23/2011 - RB Cyrus Gray sustained a stress fracture in his left shoulder, which prompted his removal in the second quarter of the Kansas win on Nov. 19. He was not ruled out for the Texas game. - The Sports Xchange

11/21/2011 - Texas A&M running back Cyrus Gray has a stress fracture in one of his shoulders and is listed as day-to-day heading into Thursday's game against rival Texas. Gray was injured in the first half of Texas A&M's 61-7 win over Kanas on Saturday. Coach Mike Sherman says Gray is wearing a sling but might be able to play even if he doesn't practice this week. Gray has 1,045 yards rushing, his second consecutive 1,000-yard season. The Aggies are already without Christine Michael, who ran for 899 yards before suffering a season-ending knee injury on Nov. 5. If Gray can't play, the Aggies will have to rely on sophomore Ben Malena and freshman Will Randolph, who made his collegiate debut on Saturday. - AP Sports

09/28/2011 - It turns out the decision by Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman to insert RB Cyrus Gray late in the Sept. 17 game against Idaho just to preserve a record was unnecessary. Gray extended his string of 100-yard rushing performances with a late carry against the Vandals, but his streak was snapped at nine by Oklahoma State. Gray was limited to 35 yards on 13 attempts, a 2.7-yard average. Darren Lewis still holds the A&M record with 10 consecutive 100-yard games. - The Sports Xchange

09/21/2011 - With his big smile and easygoing demeanor, Texas A&M running back Cyrus Gray comes across as one of the nicest guys on the team. He insists he sometimes goes to the "dark side." Luckily for the Aggies, that just means he runs harder and feels like he "can't be touched." No. 8 Texas A&M could probably use that side of him on Saturday when the Aggies face No. 7 Oklahoma State in what could be an offensive shootout. Gray has 233 yards rushing with four touchdowns in two games this season. He ran for 101 yards in A&M's 37-7 win over Idaho last week to extend his streak of consecutive 100-yard rushing games to nine, dating back to last season. - AP Sports

09/18/2011 - Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman was happy with the Aggies performance against Idaho on Saturday. He still has a list, though, of ways his ninth-ranked team must improve before next Saturday's meeting with No. 8 Oklahoma State. Cyrus Gray had three touchdowns and 101 yards rushing, Ryan Tannehill threw for 337 yards and two scores in less than three quarters and Texas A&M shook off a sloppy start for the 37-7 win. "There are plenty of things on both sides of the ball that we can get better at," Sherman said. "We're a long ways from where we want to be. We're getting closer, but we have a lot of work to do this week." The Aggies had two turnovers in the first quarter, but Idaho didn't take advantage. Texas A&M had tacked on 27 points before halftime thanks to two touchdowns by Gray to take a comfortable lead and go on to the win. Gray finished with 101 yards rushing for his ninth straight 100-yard game dating to last season. He had a 17-yard touchdown run and a 3-yard reception for a score in the second quarter. His 1-yard run midway through the third quarter pushed the lead to 37-0. Gray had 99 yards rushing late in the fourth quarter and Sherman gave him one chance to extend his streak, even though most of the other starters had been out for a while. - AP Sports

09/04/2011 - Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael ran for two touchdowns apiece and Ryan Tannehill threw for two more scores to help No. 8 Texas A&M beat SMU 46-14 on Sunday night. The Aggies were anxious to get on the field and bring the focus back to football instead of the school's decision to leave the Big 12. They got things going early, intercepting quarterback Kyle Padron's passes on SMU's first two possessions to jump out to a 14-0 lead. SMU coach June Jones replaced Padron with backup J.J. McDermott after the early miscues and he helped the Mustangs cut it to 20-14 in the second quarter. But the Mustangs couldn't do much offensively after that and the Aggies scored 26 straight points the rest of the way to secure the win. Gray finished with 132 yards rushing. Michael, in his first game since breaking his leg last October, added 85. Tannehill was 21 of 26 for 246 yards. Ryan Swope led Texas A&M's receivers with eight receptions for 109 yards and a score and Jeff Fuller added six catches for 52 yards. - AP Sports

08/25/2011 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: Avoiding complacency is the first directive for the Aggies after they won six straight to close the regular season and factored into the Big 12 South chase a year ago. Ryan Tannehill was inserted at quarterback, and his only defeat came against LSU in the Cotton Bowl. He returns, along with nine other offensive starters. Expectations have certainly changed, and talent exists for A&M to contend in the Big 12, but the Aggies cannot be misled by last season's season-ending flourish. Key contributors, including RB Cyrus Gray, WR Jeff Fuller and WR Ryan Swope must improve to reach the next level. - The Sports Xchange

08/10/2011 - 2011 PRESEASON PAUL HORNUNG AWARD WATCH LIST: Cyrus Gray, Texas A&M, has been named one of 50 players selected to the Paul Hornung Award Watchlist for the 2011 college football season, given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission and football legend Paul Hornung. Gray carries a streak of seven consecutive games with over 100 rushing yards into 2011, which is the second longest in school history behind Darren Lewis' streak of 10 in 1988. The Big 12's leading returning rusher, the DeSoto, Texas, native finished with 1,133 yards and 12 touchdowns to become the first Aggie to rush for over 1,000 yards since Courtney Lewis in 2003. Additionally, Gray added 251 yards on 34 receptions to become only the second player in school history (Darren Lewis) to eclipse the 5,000-yard plateau in career all-purpose yards. - Texas A&M football

07/19/2011 - 2011 DOAK WALKER AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Cyrus Gray (Sr.), Texas A&M, has been named one of 52 running backs selected to the 2011 Doak Walker Award Preseason Watch List for the 2011 college football season.
