A speedy, full force gale out wide who's brilliance has directly delivered a championship ring upon his finger (as well as one of the most incredible state title game moments in Louisiana high school football lore):

Many will remember Chris for his epic 80 yard shuttle screen catch and burn vs West Monroe in the 2018 5A state title game, a now legendary play which came on a do-or-die 3rd & 10 moment in the final minutes of the 4th quarter, capturing Zachary vs West Monroe's madcap lunacy on that wild night inside the Superdome..... with everything on the line.

“Once I broke free, I looked up at the big screen and saw that he was behind me and I had to turn on the jets,” Hilton said to WAFB's Jacques Doucet & Craig Loper.

This title-winning moment also demonstrated (for anyone to see) a superior receiving talent already steps ahead of his opponents.... and he was only a sophomore.

Throughout his sophomore & junior campaigns at Zachary High, Chris Hilton Jr caught 73 passes for 1,388 yards and 18 receiving TDs, establishing his legend before attracting the LSU offer from Mickey Joseph & Kevin Faulk.

Setting up Coach Brewerton's Zachary with a deep run in this last year's playoffs (falling 31-28 in the 5A semifinals to Acadiana), Hilton leaves Zachary with a state title playing football, three consecutive state titles in high jumping (clearing 7 feet every time), joining his father by winning a 400 meter dash state title (50.71 seconds) and last but not least, committing Zachary's greatest moment in school history......he'll forever be an ambassador of that great institution....

Now, Chris Jr sets his sights on taking over the SEC...one catch, one playmaking circus grab, one broken tackle after another...right alongside his friend Brian Thomas Jr.

Among one of the most talented WR corps in LSU history (at least in the top 2 or 3 all time), Hilton provides the furious speed & unearthly hops next to Brian Thomas Jr's all-around metaphysical atrocities, Deion Smith's aerial magnetism, Malik Nabers' adventurous agility and Jack Bech's towering thunderdome.
