UHS MALE ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

Quincy Bryant, baseball shortstop

Quincy is a great student and athlete, and an an AP and honors
student at UHS. He is the model senior that any coach would want in
his program. He works extremely hard, puts the program first and is willing to do whatever coaches ask him to win games. He has done this for four years. He came in as a skinny freshman and transformed himself into one
of the top shortstops in Union County. Next year he will be attending the University of Delaware, attempting to walk on to one of the top baseball programs in the Northeast. On behalf of the Union baseball program,
we wish him nothing but the best.
