As a child of missionaries, Quinn Cannington grew up in Manila, Philippines, which is where his love for basketball began. During his high school years, Quinn’s family moved back to the United States and he played basketball at Fulton High School. He then went to the University of Tennessee where he continued his basketball career as a four-year walk-on coached by Bruce Pearl.
He is excited to join Emerald Youth as the Gym Sports Ministry Manager because of the immediate, as well as eternal, impact Emerald is making with young people across Knoxville.
Quinn attends Fellowship Church and is an avid NBA fan – his favorite player of all time is Michael Jordan. He also loves the North Carolina Tar Heels.
