Move over Dorial Green-Beckham
The Mizzou star wide receiver is now No. 2 all-time in the high school record books, looking up at Barbe (Lake Charles, La.)
senior Trey Quinn
Quinn topped Green-Beckham's mark of 6,356 career yards on Friday night in an opening-round 42-16 playoff victory over South Lafourche.
According to Albert Burford of the American Press, the 6-foot, 200-pound LSU commit broke the mark on his first catch of the second half, a 26-yarder from quarterback Kennon Fontenot
with Barbe leading 42-14.
Quinn caught the ball along his own own sideline in traffic. He was then mobbed by teammates. The catch pushed him to 197 yards on the night and upped his career total to 6,376.
He needed 176 yards to tie the record and he got 67 of it on the first play of the game, a touchdown grab under double coverage from Fontenot
. Quinn added touchdown catches of 19 and 32 catches to move to within 38 of the record midway through the second quarter and Barbe leading 35-14. He also added a 43-yard touchdown run to that point. By halftime, Quinn had seven catches for 171 yards and 236 all-purpose yards as Barbe took a 42-14 lead.
The game lost its luster after Quinn broke the record.
Lost in the Quinn's record-quest was Fontenot, who became just the fourth quarterback in Louisiana history to surpass the 10,000 career passing yardage mark. He was 16 of 21 for 275 yards and five touchdowns by intermission.
A starter since his freshman season, Quinn emerged on the scene as a ninth-grader, making 42 catches for 966 yards and earning MaxPreps Freshman All-American honors.
As a sophomore, he was even better, hauling in 67 passes for 1,220 yards and 12 scores.
The second half of Quinn's high school career has been more of the same, as the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder has juggled a remarkably productive high school career with the college recruiting process.
After mulling offers from the likes of Clemson and Texas Tech, Quinn committed to LSU in August.
In addition to his yardage mark, he also broke the Louisiana state record
for career receiving yards two weeks ago in a win against Sulphur.
The No. 1-ranked recruit in the class of 2011, Green-Beckham compiled his prodigious yardage total playing at Hillcrest under his father, head coach John Beckham. Green-Beckham is coming off his greatest collegiate game on Saturday when he hauled in four touchdowns for Missouri in a win over Kentucky. The 6-6, 225-pound specimen had seven catches for 100 yards.
The night before, Quinn did even better with 10 catches for 299 yards and four touchdowns in a 70-35 win over Sam Houston.
“It’s crazy,” Quinn told ESPN
on Monday. “I would never have thought I
would be in this position my freshman year. To be a 176 yards or
whatever away from a record a guy like Dorial Green-Beckham has, seeing
what he is doing in the SEC … it’s crazy.”
