Trinity's Quick named Mister Football

Posted: Updated:


Louisville Trinity had Plan B ready for the Class 6A state championship game just in case James Quick's rib injury prevented him from playing.
    
Turns out the Shamrocks were able to stick with their original strategy against Pleasure Ridge Park.
    
After being cleared to return earlier that week and catching a few balls during warmups, Quick went out and helped Trinity rout PRP 61-7 for its third consecutive state title. The senior wide receiver caught three passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns as the Shamrocks (13-1) won their 22nd championship.
    
For the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Quick, the game capped a stellar season including 1,416 yards and 16 TDs on 85 receptions.
    
It also clinched his selection as Kentucky's Mr. Football by members of the Associated Press.
