Let's just call it 60 yards per catch.

When you're talking about the ridiculous kind of numbers Bishop McGuinness receiver Cody Chancellor put up Friday night, there's no point in arguing over decimals.

Chancellor had six receptions for 359 yards in McGuinness' 42-32 win over Carl Albert, and if you want to be specific, that's 59.83 yards per catch.

Sixty yards per catch. Four touchdowns. Receptions of 80-plus yards on two straight McGuinness snaps.

To this point, you could argue it's the top performance of the year. It was certainly good enough to earn Chancellor The Oklahoman's Player of the Week honors.

After the game, Irish coach Justin Jones called it “the single-best performance I've ever seen from a receiver.”

Of course, Chancellor's performance wouldn't have been possible without a quarterback to get the ball to him. Jacob Lewis ended up throwing for 385 yards and five touchdowns on 11-of-18 passing, and his deep throws were on point, which was crucial for Chancellor. Lewis also rushed for a 48-yard touchdown and intercepted a pass on defense.

“We tried to come out and run the ball, but Carl Albert did a great job of stoning that early,” Jones said. “When we had to go to the air, we did, and Jacob executed flawlessly. He put the ball where it needed to be.”
