St. Thomas More and Barbe put the pedal to the metal Friday night in a high-scoring shootout. STM prevailed by three points (39-36), but Barbe sophomore wide receiver Trey Quinn stole the show with five touchdowns. Read further to get Quinn's post-game comments and plenty more.
Sophomore Trey Quinn scored all five of Barbe's touchdowns vs. undefeated St. Thomas More, and he's only a sophomore. "We came into tonight's game with a chip on our shoulder," said Quinn (16 catches, 335 yards, three TDs). "I give all the credit for my success to our offensive line. They gave our quarterback (Keenan Fontenot) time to throw. Everybody talks about how young this team is, and we have a lot of talent. Keenan is a sophomore and we've been playing together since we were five years old. We have chemistry and people can look forward to us scoring a lot of points over the next couple of years." Quinn is so good in baseball that there's already speculation about where he'll be drafted out of high school. Quinn also scored on two touchdown runs vs. St. Thomas More.
