Trey Quinn now ranked no. 3 on nationally ranked receiving yards

by Garrett Galuszka

 

Lake Charles- Barbe star wide receiver and LSU commitment Trey Quinn now stands in special company and has the opportunity to finish his high school career with the best receiving statistics in the nation.

Quinn became the No. 3 all-time receiver nationally with 5,449 career receiving yards, surpassing current Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green and his 5,365 mark after a 245-yard, one-touchdown performance in Barbe's 35-33 loss to rival Acadiana last Friday night.

The four-star prospect now trails former Shreveport Evangel Christian's Abram Booty, No. 2 in the nation and No. 1 in Louisiana, by only 418 yards with five games remaining in the regular season. The national record is 6,356 held by Dorial Green-Beckham (Springfield Hillcrest, Mo.).

Quinn is also chasing the national career receptions record and is currently No. 8 on the list with 292 career receptions, only one reception behind No. 7 Max Morrison and 66 receptions from tying the national record-holder Davis Howell.

Quinn also tied former Shreveport Evangel Christian receiver Steve Parker, who has the state's third-most career receiving touchdowns with 55, and is tied for the No. 12 spot in the national rankings. Quinn needs two touchdowns to break into the top 10 and seven touchdowns to tie A.J. Green for No. 6 with 62 total touchdowns. Also on the list is Earvin "Magic" Johnson, who is currently fifth with 66 touchdown receptions.

However, Quinn isn't the only Buccaneer climbing his way into the record books this season. On the other side of those passes stands senior quarterback Keenon Fontenot, who has accumulated 8,388 career passing yards, which surpassed John White's 8,326 record last Friday night to take the No. 5 spot in Louisiana's record book. Fontenot now needs only 86 yards to tie former Shreveport Evangel Christian quarterback John David Booty fourth in the state. 

Fontenot was 27-for-43 for 476 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions, with his longest pass of the night to Quinn on a 68-yard touchdown reception.
