Louisville target Quick injured for Trinity

Trinity High School All-American wide receiver James Quick – one of the top recruiting targets for the University of Louisville – was injured on Friday night in a game against St. Xavier. Cardinal Authority has an update on his health.

Trinity High School All-American wide receiver James Quick left Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in an ambulance on Friday night.

But the news on Saturday morning was very encouraging.

Quick, who was injured on the Shamrocks' first possession of the game, suffered fractured ribs in the game against St. Xavier.

The leading contender for Mr. Football honors in Kentucky, Quick caught a slant pass from Travis Wright and collided with a St. Xavier defender as two other defensive players were also in on the play.

Quick lay on the ground for several minutes and then walked to the sidelines. Doctors examined him and several minutes later was strapped to a backboard and put in the ambulance for precautionary reasons.

Trinity rallied from down 14-0 to grab a 15-14 victory. The Shamrocks will host Scott County in the Class 6-A state semifinals on Friday night.

Quick's status for the game is unknown.

Quick has 82 catches for 1,333 yards and 14 touchdowns this season. For his career, Quick has a state-record 277 catches for 4,354 yards and 55 TDs.

An Army All-American, Quick said last week his list of colleges at this point was Louisville, Ohio State, Oregon, Kentucky and Tennessee. He's' expected to visit Ohio State and Oregon sometime in the next month.
