The state of the Houston Texans, like every team in the NFL is currently on hold with the impending lockout. Even though the 2011 league year is on hold, NFL Players are preparing as usual and getting ready for the upcoming season.
I was fortunate enough to catch up with Houston Texans defensive back Glover Quin and see how his current off season is going.
Glover Quin was born in McComb, Mississippi and he graduated from North Pike High School in Summit, Mississippi where he played football and basketball. Out of high school he signed with Southwest Mississippi Community College and after 1 1/2 semesters, Quin graduated and left early for The University of New Mexico.
Playing for the Lobos Quin started three years and became one of the best cover men in the Mountain West Conference. Quin left The University of New Mexico with a degree in Business Administration and started his journey to the NFL. After being invited to the East-West Shrine game and NFL Scouting Combine, Quin was drafted by the Texans in the 2009 NFL Draft in the 4th round with the 112th overall pick.
