Johnny Quinn graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Pre-Law. He played professional football, spending time with the NFL’s Buffalo BillsGreen Bay Packers, and Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. He is the CEO and Founder of The Athlete Watch, which is a pro-active leadership course in college recruiting for all student-athletes, parents, coaches and counselors. Johnny is also a member of the US National Bobsled Team. He has traveled the world with Team USA, where competition has taken him to Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Switzerland. His next stop is Sochi, Russia as a member of the US Olympic Team. Success didn’t come easy for Johnny and he says his SAYiWON’T attitude is what got him to where he is today. He states, “SayiWon't is for the underdog in everyone! As an undersized football player and now bobsledder, I have been told from day one that I was too small, too slow, and wouldn't be able to make it to the big stage. I use that as fuel for my fire, fuel to exceed all expectations and succeed with excellence. Bobsled is a sport of pushing the limits and that is what SayiWon’t encourages everyone to do and achieve their goals!”
Johnny says his biggest challenge in football “was making it to the NFL”. In bobsled, “it was becoming an Olympian and representing Team USA on it's biggest stage, athletically. I am a Christian athlete so my faith during times of success and triumph, and during low points in my athletic career, such as a blown out knee, have been in the atoning work of Jesus Christ. I believe in the biblical principle of "you reap what you sow." My athletic career has been constant sowing of positive seeds and now it's time for the harvest!” 
When asked to describe himself in one word, Johnny replied “OLYMPIAN!” SAY I WON’T! We wish Johnny and the rest of Team USA the best of luck in Sochi!
