Aurora defeated Kent Roosevelt 27-13 in Ohio second round playoff action last Friday. Senior linebacker Zach Quinn came up big in the win, as the Toledo commit starred on both sides of the football.

Although TraVon Chapman was clearly the most talented football player on the field last Friday in Aurora's 27-13 win over Kent Roosevelt, one other player stood out as an underrated prospect in Ohio.

Senior linebacker Zach Quinn, a Toledo commit, was all over the field for Aurora, in helping lead his team to the win. He clinched the victory with a 75-yard touchdown run late in the game.

"This was a huge win for us, and we played really well up front," Quinn stated. "We knew Chapman would make plays, but we had to keep doing what we do best, which is play sound, disciplined football."

"On the long run, the line opened up a hole, and I took it to the end zone," he added. "It was an option, and we blocked it well, which was the key. We based our defense on stopping Chapman, and not letting him dominate."

Quinn, 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, committed to Toledo last summer, choosing to not go through the recruiting process.

"Toledo has a great coaching staff and they have created a family atmosphere up there," he explained. "They care about their players, and it's not all about football to them. I also have a chance to play early at Toledo."

EVALUATION: Sometimes players fall through the cracks and don't always get the recruiting attention they deserve, and Quinn could be that type of player. He has excellent size, good speed and the awareness of how to play the linebacker spot. Quinn is an absolute steal for the Rockets, and is a player that probably should have been a Big Ten and/or Big East recruit. He definitely has the talent to play college football, and should have a great career at Toledo.
