Career Highlights:

Earning a spot in the Olympics is quite an accomplishment for Quinn, whose first time in a bobsled was at team trials during the 2010-11 season, where his team finished third. He sent a film showcasing his speed and acceleration to Olympic bobsled athlete Chuck Berkeley, who passed it along to driver Cory Butner. Quinn will be part of Nick Cunningham's four-man team in Sochi, along with Justin Olsen and Dallas Robinson. Quinn won a silver medal with Cunningham in the two-man event on the 2013-14 World Cup tour. After he was a two-year team captain and played in three bowl games as a wide receiver at North Texas University, Quinn was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and also spent time with the Green Bay Packers. He signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL in 2009 before suffering an ACL injury. Quinn owns and operates, a digital platform for student-athletes to market themselves to colleges and universities around the nation.
