Meet Trey Quinn. If you aren't already acquainted with the Barbe High (Lake Charles, La.) wide receiver, now might be a good time to take notice, because he's now the state's all-time leading receiver.

As reported by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Quinn reached 5,881 yards over the course of his career during Friday's 42-14 victory against Sulphur High (Sulphur, La.). That yardage total moved him 13 yards in front of former Evangel Christian Academy (Shreveport, La.) wide receiver Abram Booty's career total.

Quinn is a senior at Barbe, but still has multiple games ahead of him to continue racking up serious yardage. The Barbe star sits second all-time nationally in career receiving yards behind Missouri star Dorial Green-Beckham and now trails Green-Beckham by 475 yards.

While it might take some doing to catch Green-Beckham, Quinn has a legitimate shot at the national record for most receptions. Former Christian Academy (Knoxville, Tenn.) star Davis Howell holds that national mark with 358; Quinn has 327.

Times-Picayune reporter Andrew Lopez indicated that his estimations held that Quinn could make a run at Green-Beckham's mark if Barbe reaches the regional playoffs. Such a run would give him ample time to mount a challenge on Howell's record as well.

When he's done with it all, Quinn will head to Baton Rouge. That's when LSU fans hope the fun will keep on rolling.
