Quick Becomes ASU’s All-Time Leading Receiver

BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State University wide receiver Brian Quick (Columbia, S.C./Ridge View) became the school’s all-time leader in career receiving yardage on Saturday afternoon with a 33-yard reception from quarterback DeAndre Presley (Tampa, Fla./Middleton) early in the second quarter of ASU’s game versus archrival Western Carolina.

Needing eight yards to break the 31-year-old school record of 3,124 receiving yards set by current ASU senior associate athletics director Rick Beasley from 1978-80, Quick caught a screen pass on the right side of the field from Presley, made two tacklers miss near the line of scrimmage and scampered 33 yards for a first down.With 3,149 career receiving yards at the time of the record-breaking catch, Quick ranks fourth in Southern Conference history.

Appalachian (6-3, 4-2 SoCon) leads Western Carolina (1-8, 0-7 SoCon), 6-0, early in the second quarter. A complete recap will follow shortly after the game.
