 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  It is not every college football player who would voluntarily surrender a starting spot on a power-conference team, and with it any shot at the NFL. But Quinney's decision serves as a reminder that there is far more to each player than what is visible in 12 Saturdays in the fall. Quinney's health was a factor. Last year, he tore the ligament in his thumb against Louisville, the fourth game of the season. He chose to play with the injury for another three games and then had surgery during the team's open week. The back-to-back postponed games gave him extra time to recover, and he played with his thumb in a cast for the rest of the season.

The previous season, he injured his wrist in preseason camp and chose to play through it, starting all 12 games before having surgery at the end of the season. "None of those were career-ending injuries or anything," Quinney said. "I definitely could have kept playing, but my body just wasn't feeling too good." He weighed the toll that football was taking on his body and the fact that, while he had dreamed of playing professionally, "I'm not one of those guys where it's 'NFL or bust,'" Quinney said. - Atlanta Journal Constitution
