Future Western Kentucky wide receiver Keyron Catlett is keeping busy creating a blueprint of what he expects will be an outstanding career for the Hilltoppers.
With each catch he makes this season, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Christian County product adds to his school records for career receptions and receiving yards. With over 3,300 career receiving yards, Catlett is also climbing the state's all-time list. He passed current Miami Dolphin DeVante Parker and former Elizabethtown great Chris Gohman to move into ninth place during the past three weeks.
"It's a blessing because it's something I had on my mind since I was in middle school," Catlett told WKU Insider. "I wanted to come in and break records and now I'm leaving CCHS known for being not good, but legendary and that's my mindset going to WKU as well because I'm never satisfied. Just have go hard everyday take it one day at a time."
Catlett committed to the Hilltoppers in June after also considering Arkansas State, Eastern Kentucky and others. Since then he's continued to study the impressive play of current WKU receivers Taywan Taylor, Nicholas Norris and others. The opportunity to become apart of a receiving corp that has seen record numbers in recent years is something that excites and motivates Catlett.
"Being apart of that is such a huge blessing," he said. "To be around and apart of great receivers you are expected to do great things."
For the season, Catlett leads Christian County with 40 receptions for 672 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He's also recorded 26 carries for 188 yards and three touchdowns.
