Quentin got an early indoctrination into the type of atmosphere at Univ. of Georgia home football games. Not only did he grow up in Athens, Ga., where he attended Cedar Shoals High School, but while he was in middle school, his school operated a concession stand at Sanford Stadium, home of the Bulldogs. Having seen first-hand the excitement of playing before crowds of more than 90,000 every Saturday, there were really no other options for Quentin as to where he wanted to go to college. “Everybody there loves the University of Georgia,” he says. “I really wanted to play basketball, but once I made the decision to play football, I knew where I wanted to go.”
