The state of Kentucky has been abuzz about Trinity's super sophomore trio, James Quick, Travis Wright and Jason Hatcher. Scout Kentucky Preps caught up with one of them for a brief update.

Trinity is off to a 2-0 start this season with a match-up pending against Elder High out of Cincinnati on Friday night. One of the major weapons on the field, on either side of the ball is sophomore James Quick.

Through two games Quick has caught 13 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. But Quick does what he can for his team. "Well, as a team we have performed really well. Me as an individual; I think I am doing everything to help the team," said Quick.

As a freshman, Quick had good numbers with 25 catches for 473 yards and five touchdowns, but he's improved his game since that time.

"I think my speed is better than last year and I am becoming more of a leader on the team," he said.

Quick and his teammates boast one of the most talented groups of players in the state and is one of the favorites to win the 6A state championship this season. That's clearly a goal for this squad.

"We can win as many games as we want," said Quick. "So I am looking at a state championship team," he said. "I'm looking forward to playing everyone on our schedule and I'm taking it one game at a time," he finished.

Quick is also looking at his recruitment in the same fashion. As a sophomore, being recruited is still fairly new to him. And while he can't officially be offered, you can be certain that in-state programs such as Louisville and Kentucky are going to be hot on his trail. Other programs like Cincinnati, Tennessee, Purdue and Indiana are likely interested as well. Quick's taking it all in stride though.

"I really don't pay that any attention because I'm too focused on my school work and Trinity football," said Quick.

James did take some time out from Trinity football to check out the Louisville home game versus Kentucky last weekend, though.

"Louisville is missing some links to their team. They have a lot of heart, but they were just out-hustled," he said. "Kentucky had mistakes, but came out with the win. It was an exciting game though," he said.
