Jesuit WR Jake Oliver sets state career receptions record
October 22, 2012By Tim Polzer of VYPE MAGAZINE - Dallas
Jesuit receiver Jake Oliver broke the state record for career receptions in Friday's 20-17 loss to Lake Highlands.
Oliver's sixth catch of the game broke Jordan Shipley's previous mark of 264 receptions, set while playing at Rotan and Burnet. Oliver, a senior, has committed to play at Shipley's alma mater Texas. Oliver finished with 15 catches for 174 yards.
“We just made too many mistakes tonight,” Oliver told Keith Whitmire of The Dallas Morning News. “It’s a great memory to get this record, but I wanted to get the win really bad. But it’s a great honor.”
Whitmire reported that Jesuit officials had planned to stop the game briefly to honor Oliver, but play continued. The crowd on the home side recognized the achievement and broke into applause.
