For Byrd senior Quintin Richardson it's not about the X's and O's, just the X's. Richardson is a four year bowler for the Yellow Jackets. He led his team to a third place finish in district and an appearance in the bi-district tournament in Lake Charles.
Richardson started bowling at the age of six.
"My parents found out that there was a scholarship available for bowling that you could gain over the years and that's how I got started," said Richardson.
His best score was a 277 where he threw nine straight strikes. That number is nothing compared to his grade point average. Richardson carries a 3.75 and plans to go to school to be a doctor. He spends two hours after class practicing his bowling technique.
"we put a lot of time and a lot of practice into it and it's really competitive and really intense."
