Analysis: Quinton is a hard working player that loves the game of football. He is a run-stopper that can quickly fill the gap and punish ball carriers. He plays with focused intensity. Quinton has a natural play reading abilities. He uses this talent to consistently be in the right spot to make big plays. He is a powerful LB that can be challenge for opposing lineman that are attempting to block him. His power is derived from his focus on off-season weight training and conditioning. Quinton’s strongest point is attacking the line of scrimmage and getting into the backfield. He isn’t the type of LB that will be able to go deep into coverage due to having average speed for his position. What he lacks in speed he more than makes up for in rushing abilities and hard-hitting. With Quinton on the field, opposing quarterbacks are forced to speed up their plays to avoid getting pressured or sacked. Quinton is just recently starting to step onto the scene. He had a strong performance at last weekends Badger 7-7 and won’t be long before more people take notice of this intense football player.
