Quinn has two favorite memories that really stick out when he was playing football with his team against Bound Brook High School. “My freshman year Nino Principato drilled a field goal with time expiring to win the game. This year Derek Graichen scored with seconds left to win us the game as well.” In his spare time Quinn enjoys hanging out with his family and playing basketball and throwing a football around with his teammates.
