Senior Michael Quinn has played for a total of three seasons at UCA with the Bears soccer team and has started seven of his 25 games.
He is on scholarship at the university and plays center midfield.
He is five foot nine inches tall weighing 146 pounds.
Quinn has taken a total of 12 shots with five of those shots being on goal.
Because he is more of a midfielder and less of a forward, Quinn does not have the opportunity to score as much as some, but contributes through his defense and through assists.
His sophomore year was cut short by an ACL injury in the third game of the season.
Quinn attended North McKinley High School in Texas and was first team all-district for his high school, all-region, district utility player of the year, first team all-city and two-time MVP.
He also scored 16 goals with 15 assists during his high school career. He scored 14 goals and had eight assists as a Junior alone.
