Lourdes Academy receiver Jack McKellips hauled in seven passes for a state-high 231 yards as the Knights beat Hilbert 49-28. That included touchdown catches of 49, 4, 33, and 47 yards as Lourdes advances to Level 2.
He "only" caught 13 passes for 190 yards, but what he did with those receptions was pretty special, as Brookfield Academy's Joe Schmidt tied a state record with six receiving touchdowns in the Blue Knights' 53-48 win over Cedar Grove-Belgium. Schmidt joins Platteville's Jesse Baker (2004) and Lake Country Lutheran's Jacob Demman (2012) with six touchdown receptions in a single game in state history.
Schmidt wasn't the only one cracking the record books last week. Mosinee senior receiver Drayton Lehman continued his standout 2020 campaign with 20 catches for 188 yards and four scores in the team's 35-23 win over Cadott in a replacement game. His 20 receptions ties Cadott's Brett McChesney (2014) for the single-game state record.
