Trey Quinn, LSU Commit Breaks National Career Receiving Yards Record (Video)


Trey Quinn committed to LSU on August 17th and since then he has been on mission to break the career record for receiving yards of 6,356 held by current Missouri receiver, Dorial Green-Beckham and with a 26-yard catch in the third quarter Quinn made history.

Quinn’s Barbe team opened their postseason with a 42-16 win against South Lafourche, but the story is all about Quinn who made history. The 6-foot, 200-poiund receiver has started for Barbe since his freshman season and needed 176 yards to break the record, and he almost did it in the first two quarters as he went to the half with 171 yards on seven receptions and scored four total touchdowns.

“It’s crazy,” Quinn said Monday night. “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,”

Quinn is in position to break the career mark for receptions if Barbe can keep advancing in the playoffs. He entered Friday night’s game 21 shy of tying David Howell’s (Knoxville, Tenn. Christian Academy) 356 career receptions set in 2012.

He also moved into a tie for fourth place with 68 career touchdowns with Ben Wonderly (Sherwood, Oh. Fairview High) set in 2008. He is six behind third place, so it’s conceivable he can get to that milestone with a second playoff next weekend.

Congrats Trey and can’t wait to see you in an LSU uniform next season and work your way toward some program records and contribute to a number of wins.
