Chris Barnett, ‘97
Chris Barnett used his hands to leave Albion with every school receiving record. He graduated with the school standards for most receptions, yards and touchdown catches in a season and career.
A three-time all-MIAA pick, he led the league in receiving yards in 1994 and 1995 and ranked second in 1996. He hauled in eight touchdown passes in 1994 to finish second in the league in scoring. In all, Chris rolled up 1,289 yards and 17 touchdowns in 15 contests against MIAA rivals from 1994-96.
His career totals were 149 receptions for 2,534 yards and 28 touchdowns. In fact, he was the first Briton receiver to roll up 2,000 career receiving yards.
His best game came in the Britons’ 51-9 non-league romp over DePauw on Sept. 29, 1996. He matched Bob Basselman’s record for most receptions in a game with 11 and he tacked on the records for receiving yards in a game with 282 and the longest touchdown reception at 93 yards.
Currently residing in Madison Heights, Chris is a sales manager for Belmont Equipment and Technologies. He and his wife, Lisa, are the parents of Parker, Payton, and Andrew.
