Quinn Robertson started playing football as a second year peewee because all his friends played and they wanted him to try it out.

He played as a successful defensive tackle until the end of the season when he broke his arm, which happened to be the last time he played on the line.

During that offseason, Quinn still wanted to play so he and his friends would get together and he would play receiver with them.

Eventually he got good at catching with one hand, resulting in him playing wide receiver for the Ontario Varsity League’s (OVFL) Cambridge Lions.

When he reached the second year bantam level, he made it into the top ten in Ontario for wide receivers and was named an OVFL All-Star.

Ever since then the Lion has been looking for new opportunities for football to become a part of his future.

Quinn’s goals for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) are, “to become a better, stronger, smarter and more experienced player to help me perform better on the field.”

During the offseason, he uses his high school weight room to get bigger, stronger and faster with the help of his Jacob Hespeler gym teachers, Greg White and Anthony Maggiacomo.

The wide receiver also participates in a training program every Tuesday and Thursday called Next Level Performance Training.

Moreover, on the weekends and sometimes after school, he will get together with player on his team and work on route running, catching and conditioning.

The Lion’s football role model is Rob Gronkowski because he has always enjoyed watching Gronkowski make amazing plays in the NFL.

“Gronkowski is a very committed and hard working player and I hope to be able to be the same kind of player as him for all the teams I will play [with] in my future seasons,” commented Quinn.

“I love playing football because when I step on the field I don’t have to worry about anything aside from my football family and doing my job as a receiver for the Cambridge Lions,” added Quinn.
