Illinois Football Recruiting: Laquon Treadwell Helps Crete-Monee Win the IHSA 6A State Championship

2013 wide receiver Laquon Treadwell helped Crete-Monee High School win the IHSA 6A State Championship this weekend. The Warriors defeated the Cary-Grove Trojans, 33-26. Both the Warriors and the Trojans entered the state championship with undefeated records.

Treadwell had an amazing performance in this game. He ran for 93 yards on just six carries and scored one rushing touchdown. He averaged 15.5 yards per carry, but fumbled the ball once. However, he did not stop there as he also recorded 90 receiving yards on six receptions. He scored one receiving touchdown and averaged 15.0 yards per receptions. On top of all that, he had a successful two-point conversion run and kicked three extra points.

Treadwell helped the Warriors right from the start. With just 9:37 in the first quarter, he scored a 69 yard touchdown run to give Crete-Monee the early 6-0 lead (Treadwell missed the extra point). However, Cary-Grove kept it close as Crete-Monee only lead 14-10 at the half.

Just like the first half, Treadwell started out hot as he caught a pass and took it 57-yards to the house and kicked the extra point to give the Warriors a 21-10 lead.

Crete-Monee led Cary-Grove 33-16 going into the fourth quarter and held on to win 33-26.

Laquon Treadwell is the top ranked wide receiver in the state of Illinois for the 2013 class. The four-star athlete is ranked 4th in the nation among wide receivers and is ranked 48th in the entire country by 247Sports. He is also 20th in the ESPN 150 and is listed to have great hands and catch-in-traffic abilities.

Illinois has offered at Treadwell, but his current Top 4 consists of Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Michigan, and Oklahoma State.

Editor’s Note: Crete-Monee also has outside linebacker Nyles Morgan from the 2014 class on their team.
