Scott, now a junior at Tiffin University, collected the long jump victory with a mark of 7.32m, 24' 0.25" for the imperial measurement enthusiasts out there. He also leaped 13.74m (45' 1") for third place in the standings in the triple jump event.
Following his season opening performances, Scott, a 2018 Springfield grad and the 2017 OATCCC Division 1 indoor state champion in the LJ, debriefed with MileSplit Ohio about his 2021 debut, his aspirations to represent the USA internationally and his desire to take down the Dragons existing indoor long jump record. A mark which is held by Marquise Corbett (7.81m / 25' 7.5" from the 2017 NCAA Division 2 Indoor Track and Field Championships).
When I think about my student-athlete Quincy Scott, there are a few qualities that come to mind. One is a dedicated leader, consistent, tireless work ethic, humble, and being a student of the event.
The school record in the men's indoor long jump is 25' 5.75" (7.81m). This is something very much in his sights and is a goal of his, as he already holds the facility record at 25' 2" (7.62m), which he set last December.
Every day, I know what I am going to get when Quincy comes to practice. He is a leader on and off the track, as he maintains great grades and knows the little things to do to become a championship athlete. He is always willing to help a teammate with any teaching technique. He is continuously trying to perfect his craft in becoming a great long jumper. He is usually one of the last ones to leave a practice session. He is always willing for anything extra he can do to become more of an efficient jumper. He is a quiet guy by nature, so he does all the talking with his ability in practice and meets.
Quincy is a fierce competitor and knows how to set the standard and respond in a manner that I have seen few people do and they were able to take their talents to the next level. Quincy is a special guy! Well heck, he is a DRAGON! I'm very humbled to be his coach!
