Show Notes:

  • Dad played NFL & college football and served as an assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under Tony Dungy
  • His dad went missing before a game in 2000 vs the Atlanta Falcons because of a drug addiction
  • Quincy played at Morehouse College but always wanted to be a head coach of an NFL team
  • After college, he drove to UCLA and meet with Rick Neuheisel with hopes of getting a job
  • Lived in the locker room at UCLA before returning to Atlanta with hopes of starting a QB training company
  • He didn't have any money to rent a facility but scheduled an elite camp at 5:30 AM at a donated facility but no one showed up
  • Josh Dobbs eventually asked if could work with Quincy because he didn't have any college offers at the time
  • Helping guys get to the next level ultimately makes him happy and he's a product of being driven by what he says he wants to accomplish
  • Has helped over 150 players earn scholarships saving parents over $14 million in tuition
  • Very hard to trust people because he’s seen how outside factors can become more important to loved ones than the person that they’re supposed to love the most
  • Was homeless he moved back to Atlanta but feels that the thing that you fear the most in the world is not so bad
  • Likes working with 10th and 11th graders the most because you get to see them develop
  • Knew Deshaun would be a great talent immediately because he immediately saw the IT factor combined with talent
  • Sports helped him learn to deal with adversity
  • Words of Wisdom from Quincy Avery: "Don’t get caught up in the things that other people are saying about what you’re doing."
