However, having already attended camp at Rutgers, Chris was adamant in wanting to go to Rutgers. Eventually, Mr. and Mrs. Quay visited Rutgers and came around to their son's way of thinking. Mrs. Quay had this to say about Rutgers. "When we visited Rutgers, we found the facilities to be even better than Penn State and after meeting Coach Schiano, we both came away tremendously impressed. I know Coach Schiano is going to take good care of my boy and I know they will make sure that Chris studies hard and graduates." Mr. and Mrs. Quay plan on attending all Rutgers home games and most of the away games.
Although Chris played both linebacker and running back in high school, he will play linebacker for the Scarlet Knights. As a junior Chris recorded 118 tackles and five forced fumbles. While his numbers were down as a senior, mostly due to an injury causing him to miss the first four games of his senior season, Chris still ended the season with 72 tackles, including 26 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Chris was a unanimous All-Conference pick at linebacker and earned All State Group III honors. Timber Creek head coach John Small had this to say about Chris. "He is not only one of the nicest kids you'll ever meet, but he is also a great player. He is an extremely intelligent football player and has improved dramatically in my two years here. He leads by example and when he turned it up a notch, he was unstoppable on both sides of the ball."
To prepare for his upcoming
season at Rutgers, Chris has been following the weight- training regimen given
to him by Rutgers and running track and field. When asked how he felt about
leaving home for the first time, Chris stated that, "he was really looking
forward to living on his own." Chris feels that with the depth at the linebacking
position, he will in all likelihood redshirt as a freshman.
