Henderson Head Coach Hugh Fountain
‘Quavian has outstanding speed and a long body. When he gets in the weightroom, Quavian is going to be something else.
‘He isn[apos]t afraid of doing work. We sat down two years ago and mapped out a plan for him to get the most out of his ability and Quavian did everything we asked. He worked hard to make it a reality. You[apos]re talking about a very athletic young man, athletic enough to play receiver for us.’
