Words from the Head Coach:
“Quinn is another one of our rising senior players that has started games since his Freshman year. He is an undersized Outside Linebacker but, what he lacks in size, he makes up for with his intelligence and toughness. Has a great understanding of the defense and what everyone should be doing and where they should be aligned. Understands opponents offenses and what they are trying to do to our defense. Is in great position most of the time and uses angles, his size and intelligence to his advantage. Because of intellectual abilities, he has forced his way on to the field offensively for us as well and has done a nice job at FB for us as needed. Again, know assignments and uses his toughness to make necessary blocks and does a nice job running the ball and making catches when given the opportunity. Looking forward to a great senior season from him and for him to step into a leadership role and use his attributes to positively impact the team as a whole.”
