A product of Hamlet, NC, Quick would attend Richmond Senior High School in nearby Rockingham. He wouldn’t travel far to attend college, going to North Carolina State in Raleigh and becoming a star wideout at the school. Philadelphia would select him with their first-round pick in the 1982 draft. He would have immense success in only his second season in 1983, being selected to his first-ever Pro Bowl (the first of five consecutive selections from 1983 to 1987), as well as earning First-team All-Pro honors and becoming the NFL’s receiving yards leader for the season. He would also earn First-team All-Pro honors again in 1985 after eclipsing over 1200 yards. He would retire from a nine-year career in 1990 and later was inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame.
