Trinity sophomore James Quick is the real deal

I said it earlier this year, barring something unforeseen happening in the next couple of years, James Quick is going to be the best athlete to come out of the city of Louisville in quite some time.

Quick, who stars on the basketball court and won the 200-yard dash Kentucky 3-A state title in 21.73 seconds last spring as a freshman, wrapped up his sophomore season at Trinity with 89 catches for 1,209 yards and 16 touchdowns, and 18 carries for 187 yards and one TD.

Jody Demling said recently that Quick is not a "lock" for Louisville as some have insinuated. The sophomore is now hearing from programs like USC and figures to garner even more national attention in the months ahead.

When it comes to recruiting in Louisville, having this kid on campus in three years is Priority A.

This is the first play of Saturday's 6A state championship game.

Again, he's a sophomore.
