04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 2/33 - Brian Quick, WR, 6-4, 222, Appalachian State...The Rams love his size, hands and ability to snatch the ball. They aren't worried the level of competition in college. General manager Les Snead said of the receivers they worked out, Quick "was as good, or better, than all of them." - The Sports Xchange

04/27/2012 - WR Brian Quick, Appalachian State -- After much maneuvering -- trading back from No. 2 and No. 6 to wind up with defensive tackle Michael Brockers with the 14th pick -- the Rams missed out on the top receiver in the draft, Justin Blackmon. Quick has 4.5 speed but elite size and arm length to develop into a No. 1-type receiver. The question is how long it might take for him to adjust coming out of the FBS.

04/09/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP WIDE RECEIVERS: Brian Quick, Appalachian State, 6-4, 220...Quick played up to his significant measurements as a big man in a small-school conference. He is one of the most highly rated prospects in Appalachian history. He is the school's all-time leader in receptions (202), receiving yards (3,418) and touchdown catches (31). Last season was his best with 71 catches, 1,096 yards and 11 scores. Despite his last name, Brian is probably faster than quick but is a tremendous target short or deep. He has excellent downfield speed once after he gets into second gear or higher and ran a decent 40-yard dash at the combine (best of 4.50 seconds). Quick also plays even larger than his height thanks to 34??-inch arms and an 80?-inch wingspan. Add to that a 34-inch vertical jump and Quick has everything it takes to become a quarterback's favorite target, especially in the red zone. He impressed scouts at the Senior Bowl and in the game was a favorite target of Boise State QB Kellen Moore. And, lest we forget a historical moment, Quick was one of only two players on the team last year who were part of the 2007 victory over Michigan. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

03/21/2012 - Representatives from 26 NFL teams trickled into Kidd Brewer Stadium on Monday, the most to attend Pro Day at Appalachian State. The man responsible for the larger-than-usual turnout - Brian Quick - wasn't hard to spot. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 220 pounds, he was wearing red shorts and a white T-shirt and catching footballs. Quick's presence wasn't a bad thing for the seven other former ASU players who had a chance to show their skills. "We had a pretty big stage for our guys to perform on," said Kareem Young, ASU's interim strength-and-conditioning director who coordinated the event. Quick, with an athletic physique, enough speed and the playmaking ability to project as a potential big-time NFL receiver, seems to have created as much or more buzz among NFL scouts than any past ASU prospect. Many analysts expect him to be picked as high as the second round in April's draft. "I really don't know what to expect, and, you know, it doesn't matter," Quick said. "Teams have different opinions. You hear that one team says one thing, another team says something else. I'll just be happy to be drafted. "It doesn't matter where I'm drafted or where I'm projected. At the end of the day, I want to be able to stay in the NFL. Being picked is just the first step. I don't care about the money, that doesn't matter. I want to be picked and I want to stay in there...." Young said the fact that Quick played only one season of high school football and still has potential to improve significantly adds to scouts' interest. "To them, he's a very young player," Young said. "He is somewhat of a blank slate to them, with the athleticism he has and the innate ability that he has. He plays up high. He plays really, really high. He's a big body. He's very agile for his size. And he's a good kid. He's a country guy from South Carolina who doesn't have any problems." - Tommy Bowman, Winston-Salem Journal

03/20/2012 - Representatives from 26 National Football League teams converged on Appalachian State University on Monday for ASU's annual Pro Day. Eight former Mountaineers worked out for the assembled professional football personnel at the Appalachian Athletics Center and Kidd Brewer Stadium. The former Apps that participated in Monday's activities included wide receiver Brian Quick, defensive back/wide receiver/return specialist DeAndre Presley, running back/wide receiver/return specialist Travaris Cadet, defensive linemen Dan Wylie, Chris Aiken and Gordy Witte, Jr., tight end Ben Jorden and running back Cedric Baker Boney. Appalachian also welcomed four prospects from nearby schools that do not conduct their own Pro Days: quarterback Cody Haffly and linebacker Clayton Hazeltine from Wingate, defensive end Aaron Patterson from Fayetteville State and tight end Andrew Rogers from Western Carolina. Quick was the biggest draw for the largest contingent of NFL clubs to ever attend an ASU Pro Day. The 6-5, 220-pound receiver, who has already turned in strong showings for scouts at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine, participated in nearly all of the activities, including the 40-yard dash and wide receiver-specific route-running and ball drills. He appeared to impress the nearly three dozen professional football staffers on hand, which included multiple representatives from a handful of NFL teams as well as scouts from Canadian Football League franchises. Per ASU policy, the school does not release specific results from Pro Day workouts, including 40-yard dash times. ASU interim director of strength and conditioning Kareem Young said that the six NFL teams that did not send representatives to Monday's Pro Day have all scheduled private workouts with at least one former Mountaineer. - ASU football

01/23/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL WEIGH-IN IMPRESSIONS: Perhaps the most significant element of the weigh-in proceedings is simply comparing the so-called "small school" prospects to the BCS players. Fortunately for Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick, Furman cornerback Ryan Steed, Massachusetts H-back/fullback Emil Igwenagu and Cal Poly cornerback Asa Jackson, their impressive physiques certainly passed the eye-ball test as legitimate pro prospects. Quick, in fact, was one of the more physically impressive players on either roster. He measured in at 6-3 (1/2) and a rock-solid 222 pounds. His 33 1/2 inch arms were only slighter shorter than North Carolina's Dwight Jones (33 5/8) and Texas A&M's Jeff Fuller (34 1/8) -- two receivers who have generated a great deal more national attention than Quick. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

01/23/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL MONDAY: A few uncharacteristic drops from Appalachian State's Brian Quick late in Monday's practice dampened an otherwise strong initial showing from the FCS All-American. Quick, who measured in at a chiseled 6-3 (and a 1/2) and 222 pounds Monday morning was the early star among receivers. Though not sudden off the line of scrimmage, his long-strides help him to quickly eat up the cushion and he showed terrific hand-eye coordination making several impressive catches out of some poor throws. Quick, in fact, arguably made the catch of the day when he snatched a quick out thrown high and wide by Moore. Quick used every bit of his height and long arms to pull the ball down while dragging both feet in bounds to secure the catch. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/21/2011 - 2011 AFCA FCS ALL-AMERICA TEAM: WR Brian Quick, Sr., Appalachian State, has been selected to the 2011 AFCA Football Championship Subdivision Coaches' All-America Team announced by the American Football Coaches Association. The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. What makes these teams so special is that they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the men who know the players the best - the coaches themselves. As a senior, Quick ranked among the nation's leaders with 71 receptions for 1.096 yards and 11 touchdowns, good for fourth in Appalachian history in each category. His 1,000-yard season was the just the fifth ever by a Mountaineer receiver while his seven 100-yard receiving performances in 12 games tied an ASU record. In the process, the 6-5, 220-pound NFL prospect also became the school's all-time career leader with 202 receptions, 3,418 yards and 31 touchdown catches. - Appalachian State football

12/21/2011 - 2011 AP FCS ALL-AMERICAN SECOND TEAM: Wide Receiver - Brian Quick, senior, Appalachian State, has been selected Second Team All-American for the 2011 college football season by The Associated Press.

11/12/2011 - Drew Stewart kicked a school-record six field goals and Appalachian State routed Western Carolina 46-14 on Saturday. Stewart scored the Mountaineers' (7-3, 5-2 Southern Conference) first 12 points on field goals of 44, 32, 29 and 21 yards. Stewart added field goals of 27 and 24 yards to break Jay Milson's record of four set against Furman in 1991. Brian Quick also entered the Appalachian State record books, becoming the all-time leader in career receiving yards. Quick had 111 yards and a touchdown on seven catches against the Catamounts (1-9, 0-8). He broke the record of 3,124 yards set by Rick Beasley from 1978-80 on a 33-yard reception early in the second quarter. Appalachian State led 39-0 early in the fourth quarter, and held the Catamounts to 11 first downs and 20 yards rushing. Brandon Pechloff had two touchdowns and 188 yards on 10 of 21 passing for the Catamounts. - AP Sports

10/29/2011 - Jamal Jackson threw for three touchdowns and Appalachian State's defense stood firm in the fourth quarter in a 24-17 victory over previously unbeaten Georgia Southern on Saturday. Jackson found Brian Quick for a 15-yard touchdown pass with 9:24 remaining, their second scoring connection of the game. The Mountaineers (6-2, 4-1 Southern Conference) then stopped the Eagles (7-1, 5-1) three times in Appalachian State territory, including once after an interception gave Georgia Southern a first-and-goal at the 9. The Eagles, who came in ranked first in the Football Championship Subdivision coaches poll and had been averaging 369.7 rushing yards a game- best in the FCS-were held to 135 on the ground and 201 yards total offense by Appalachian State. The Mountaineers, who have won or shared the last six conference titles, avenged last year's 21-14 overtime loss to the Eagles, which ended their 26-game conference winning streak. - AP Sports

09/24/2011 - Appalachian State relied on its defense in a 14-12 win over Chattanooga on Saturday in the Southern Conference opener for both teams. Rodger Walker of Appalachian State erased a 6-0 deficit by returning a fumble 74 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the third quarter. Then Jeremy Kimbrough intercepted a pass and returned it 46 yards for a score with 13:38 to play, giving the Mountaineers a 14-6 lead. The Mocs (2-2) pulled to within 14-12 on a 20-yard touchdown pass from B.J. Coleman to Sloan Allison with 9:51 to play, but Coleman's pass on the two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete. Doug Middleton sealed the win for the Mountaineers by intercepting Coleman at the Mocs' 40-yard-line with 11 seconds remaining. Appalachian State (3-1) has won seven in a row, 24 of the past 27 and 14 in a row at home in the series. - AP Sports

09/10/2011 - Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore earned his 200th win at the school as the Mountaineers routed North Carolina A&T 58-6 on Saturday. Moore, 200-80 in 23 seasons at the school, has won 71 percent of his games. The win came after a 53-point loss to Virginia Tech last weekend. DeAndre Presley ran for two touchdowns and passed for two more as the Mountaineers (1-1) rolled up 491 yards on offense. Presley completed 19 of 23 passes for 197 yards. Brian Quick caught 11 passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns. Cedric Baker Boney rushed for 11 yards and a touchdown as the Mountaineers gained 255 yards on the ground. The Aggies (1-1) were productive on offense, gaining 335 yards. However, they turned the ball over three times and converted just four of 12 third-down possessions. Lewis Kindle led the Aggies' offense with 165 yards passing and a touchdown. - AP Sports

08/23/2011 - A committee at Appalachian State says the Mountaineers' football program should jump to the Bowl Subdivision. The school's athletics feasibility committee voted Monday to recommend to Chancellor Kenneth Peacock that it seek membership in an FBS conference. The 11-member committee completed a seven-month feasibility study. Committee co-chairman G.A. Sywassink said a move to the FBS "is not imminent" but the school needs to make its intentions known before "what appears to be another seismic shift" in conference affiliations. The Mountaineers won three straight Championship Subdivision titles from 2005-07. They have captured six straight Southern Conference titles and have led the FCS in regular-season home attendance four straight years. The next step is for Peacock to make his recommendation. The school's board of trustees must approve any conference or subdivision changes. - AP Sports
