  1. Tanner McEvoy- Joe Quick
  2. Joe Quick, born in Indianapolis, is a extremely raw, but extremely talented scat style running back. Only played one year of HS football, but broke several single season rushing records in the process, including YPG, YPC, and - in evidence of his speed and elusiveness- YBFC (yards before first contact) and TD's. Quick was not able to play until his senior year, after his 18th birthday, when he was able to declare age of majority and overrule his parents decision to forbid him to play based on religious objections. Quick displays a maturity not normally seem in 18 year olds. He has had an interesting last 2 years and had diplayed outstanding leadership qualities on and off the field despite off field issues. 5th in his graduating class with a 4.1 GPA. Quick lives up to his name, possessing track level speed to pair with agility and soft, natural hands. Extremely high IQ for his age, finding holes in the line and setting up/ using blocks on second level only seen from career prep kids. Absorbs the game like a sponge, eager to learn and work in the film room, weight room and practice field. Will need to develop proper blocking techniques to be effective on passing downs. Needs strength, muscle, fat; anything to give him more mass to absorb blocks and tackles. Average at shedding tackles, but largely due to size. Most technique issues can be coached. Not fumble prone, but mostly from large hands and not from technique. Will need coaching before drops due to better competition becomes an issue. Quick was recently put out of his parents home for "disassociating" from his parents religion. He no longer has ties to them as they "can no longer communicate" with him. My staff and I are baffled and surprised by this. We reached out to his parents numerous times, but was always told that he shouldn't have "worldly association". Again, he's an outstanding kid who has never been in trouble, 4.1 GPA with no charater issues and glowing praise from his teachers and faculty, but his parents cut him off and have advised fellow family members to do so as well. He has taken it in stride, stating his commitment to playing as much college football necessary to prepare for the EPL, openly stating he wants to complete his degree before being drafted. He doesn't press much when speaking on the subject, but he does seem distracted by it. Something to keep an eye out for. He won't say it, but he really needs to get this burden off his shoulders to clear his mental state. The coaching staff here has attempted to, but with little success. Maybe a college counselor, or faculty advisor can help. Again, he's completely focused on the field, but I'm sure it will hurt knowing he doesn't have family support during his college career. Whatever college he commits to will get a diamond in the rough. What he lacks in experience, he makes up for determination, effort, and hustle. He has all the natural gifts to be an elite running back.
