Johnny Quinn, the Mean Green's all-time leading receiver, followed his record-setting college career to professional football - and a serendipitous foray into bobsledding that has made him a competitior for a place on the U.S. Olympic team.
Quinn, who was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2011, is bobsledding in Europe and the U.S. in preparation for tryouts for the 2014 games.
Quinn also founded The Athlete Watch, a company that helps young athletes market themselves to college recruiters."You have to be pro-active," he tells high school athletes who want to earn a college scholarship. His business helps athletes prepare a profile, video and other information about their skills.
