What They’re Saying About Quintin Garrison

Todd Abernethy, FAU Assistant Coach: “Valpo made a great hire in Quintin. Not only is he a great coach and teacher of the game, but he has a unique ability to connect with players and gain their trust. He will be an amazing mentor to the young men on the team and will add value to the program because of his experience at the high school and college level. He was an invaluable resource in my first year as a college head coach, and I’m confident that he will do the same for Coach Powell and Valpo Basketball.”

Greg Miller, Trinity International Head Coach: “Coach Q is excellence personified. The way he approaches his work on a daily basis is the same approach that every program in the country would be happy to have. He made our program better each day through building genuine relationships with our players, recruiting high character and high caliber players, helping each player to be the best possible version of himself on and off the court and all while being a man of integrity. Coach Q is a great hire for Valpo Basketball.”
