The Big 10 has had some outstanding receivers over the years and Philip Barbour’s Al Johnson is etching his name right beside them.
Johnson leads the league in receptions with 29 for 384 yards. Not to be outdone, Lincoln’s Dillon O’Dell is nine catches behind at 20, but leads the Big 10 in receiving yards with 404.
East Fairmont’s Scotty Shroyer is third with 16 catches, followed by the Cougars’ Anthony Gemondo (12) and a trio of players tied with 10 (Preston’s Austin Newsome, Grafton’s Tyler Moore and Lincoln’s Seibel).
