Prep Football Central: Quinn sets national receiving record in Bucs victory

Barbe wide receiver Trey Quinn became the high school football player with the most receiving yards ever in a career as the Bucs took care of South Lafourche 42-16 at Buccaneer Stadium Friday night in a Class 5A bi-district playoff game.

Quinn eclipsed Dorial Green-Beckham’s mark of 6,356 yards on a contested 26-yard catch from quarterback Kennon Fontenot in the third quarter. After the catch, which Quinn made on the edge of the Barbe (9-2) sideline, the future LSU Tiger was mobbed by teammates.

“It’s emotional. I’m getting chills right now talking about it,” Quinn said. “I never thought I would get that emotional in a game. To see the people I’ve grown up with come hug me after that, it’s unreal.”

Quinn’s nine-catch, 216-yard effort against the Tarpons (5-6) brought the national record to 6,396 yards.

“It’s playoff time and our main focus is getting a ring,” Quinn said. “As soon as we got that record out of the way, our eyes are on one prize and one prize only. It’s good that we got it in the first round and now we can move on.”

Barbe went to Quinn on the first play from scrimmage for a 67-yard touchdown pass to put the Bucs ahead 7-0, but South Lafourche responded quickly with two touchdowns.

Tarpons running back Jake Williams caused all sorts of problems for the Barbe defense early on, rushing nine times for 68 yards and a score before an injury sidelined the senior for the remainder of the game.

“That killed us,” said South Lafourche head coach Dennis Skains. “The offense just doesn’t run the same without him. He’s a special football player and he’s going to be missed next year. I hate that it ended like that for him.”

Barbe scored five consecutive touchdowns after falling behind 14-7 and didn’t allow another offensive touchdown.

“We just picked up the intensity on defense,” he said. “Our kids decided they wanted to start playing. You’ve got to give credit to South Lafourche — they came out and were playing with more intensity the first couple of series, but our kids responded well.”

Quinn finished with three receiving touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. Fontenot completed 21 of 31 passes for 353 yards and five touchdowns and became the fourth quarterback in Louisiana high school football to surpass the 10,000-yard career passing mark.

“It’s a tribute to them. It’s not us, it’s nothing we did,” Cutrera said. “Those guys are great athletes. They’re not worried about those records, they want to win.

“Our main concern was to win the game. The records happened, which was great. Those two guys are remarkable.”

Barbe will travel to Hahnville next week.

“We’ve ended many a season in Hahnville,” Cutrera. “We’re looking to change that luck and go down there and have a good showing.”

Class 4A: DeRidder 31, Woodlawn-Shreveport 0

DERIDDER — For the second straight year DeRidder advanced to the regional round of the Class 4A state playoffs.

The Dragons (10-1) got started early when senior Drew Victor put them on the board behind a 1-yard run. From that point on they never looked back, slamming the Knights for 204 yards on the ground. Victor finished the night with 48 yards and two touchdowns while junior running back D’Angelo Reder picked up a game high 135 yards on 18 rushes.

It was the DeRidder defense that stepped up big on the night though, holding Woodlawn (5-6) to 94 yards of total offense. Sophomore linebacker David Crosley sealed the victory in the fourth quarter when he returned an interception 21 yards for a touchdown.

Class 4A: LaGrange 32, Lutcher 28

LaGrange’s Alvinosky LaFleur made the most of a cameo appearance on offense, scoring the winning touchdown on a 7-yard reception from Quindon Barry with 14 seconds left to give LaGrange a Class 4A bi-regional round win over Lutcher.

The No. 14 seed Gators (6-5) advanced to face the winner between No. 3 Landry-Walker vs. No. 30 Ellender winner. That game will be played today in New Orleans.

The Gators extended their winning streak to six games in most dramatic style, squandering a 24-7 halftime lead. Lutcher (5-6) scored 21 straight points to take a 28-24 lead, getting the go-ahead score with 2:11 remaining on an 8-yard scramble by quarterback Christian Matherne.

Class 4A: Plaquemine 28, Washington-Marion 12

Two years ago, Washington-Marion shocked Plaquemine in front of its home crowd.

The sixth-seeded Green Devils made sure that history did not repeat itself on as they advanced to the second round of the Class 4A playoffs with a second-half comeback.

Despite having his knee drained earlier in the week, Plaquemine senior running back Julius Maracalin made sure that his high school career did not end yet. He ran for 169 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries to lead the Green Devils to their first playoff win in nine seasons.

Class 3A: Jennings 37, Jena 14

Class 3A: Westlake 13, Franklin 6

WESTLAKE — After a slow start, the Westlake Rams won the war of momentum to put the Franklin Hornets away 13-6 in the opening round of the Class 3A state playoffs.

The Rams (6-5) were never dominated, but had trouble putting the ball in the end zone in the first half. But thanks to five turnovers and a huge boost from their defense in the second half, they were finally able to put away the pesky Hornets (6-5).

“This was a big win and I am very proud of my kids right now,” said Westlake head coach Shawn Demeritt. “The seniors did a good job of leading us all week long, and we knew Franklin was a good team coming in. They presented us with some big challenges, but I thought we responded well and put ourself into a good situation for next week.”

The Rams advanced to the regional round where they will travel to play District 4-3A rival Jennings in hopes of avenging their Week 10 loss to the Bulldogs (8-3).

Class 3A: North Webster 38, Iowa 20

IOWA — No. 15 Iowa walked into the game looking for a fresh start in the playoffs after ending the regular season on a three-game losing streak.

The motivation was there after a Chaz Key 68-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage. But the defense wasn’t the rest of the game as the Yellow Jackets gave up 457 rushing yards in a loss to No. 18 North Webster.

“I thought our kids played extremely hard,” Iowa head coach Sean Richard said. “I’m extremely proud of our seniors. They’ve done a lot for us this year and for the last four years. We lost to a good football team."

VINTON &mash; In their first playoff appearance since 2006, Vinton throttled an outmanned General Trass squad.

At the end of the first quarter, Vinton (9-2) led by only one point and General Trass (3-9) was threatening. It appeared the Lions would have a fight on their hands.

Class 2A: Loreauville 63, DeQuincy 28

LOUREAUVILLE — Lester Johnson scored twice for DeQuincy but it wasn’t enough as Loureauville’s balanced attack was too much for the Tigers.

Johnson finished with 120 yards for the 3-8 Tigers.

In a game that had 1,075 yards of combined offense — Logansport quarterback Logan Spears countered the Lemoine Express with 450 yards passing on 25 completions — it was the Elton defense that had to stand tall at the end.
