Last weekend, LSU wide receiver commit Trey Quinn set the Louisiana state record for career receptions. This past weekend, he set the state record for career yardage.
What will he do this weekend?
Well, he’s within striking distance of a couple of Mizzou WR Dorial Green-Beckham’s national records, too.
Barbe HS’s Quinn caught an 18-yard pass in the third quarter of his team’s win over Sulphur HS, and that broke the career yardage record set by former LSU receiver Abram Booty, who played at Evangel Christian in the 1990s.
Quinn now has 5,881 career receiver yards, 475 yards behind Green-Beckham’s national record with one regular season game and possible postseason games left. Quinn caught 14 passes for 152 yards on Friday.
He trails the national career receptions leader by 31 catches, which seems well within range too. That record is held by another former receiver, not Green-Beckham.
“I kept up with DGB (Green-Beckham) his senior year,” Quinn told Saturday Down South on Sunday night. “It would be a real honor to surpass a talented high school and college receiver like him. I never thought I would have this opportunity, but I would give all these yards up for a (championship) ring, in a heartbeat.”
- Florida QB commit Will Grier finished the regular season with 438 total yards accounted for and 4 TDs. His team finished 9-1 for the regular season and enters the postseason as a favorite for a third straight state championship. Grier finished the regular season with 3,453 yards passing and 53 TDs, along with 1,130 yards rushing, with 11 TDs. If his team, Davidson Day (N.C). were to make the state title game, he would have three more games to play.
