Eagles Wide Receiver great
*Special thanks to: The Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame
If the 1983 NFL draft was the Year of the Quarterback with Hall of Famers John Elway, Jim Kelly and Dan Marino going in the first round, the previous year was decidedly NOT the year of the wide receiver. The first three receivers of the 1982 NFL draft included such forgettable names as Anthony Hancock (11th), Lindsay Scott (13th) and Perry Tuttle (19th).
Michael “Mike” Anthony Quick was born in Hamlet, North Carolina, the youngest boy among nine siblings. Then and now, his close-knit, spiritual family under the loving and steadfast guidance of his mother, Mary, inspired and motivated him to succeed as an athlete, community leader, businessman, friend and most important, son, brother, and father to his twin sons
A gifted athlete from an early age, Quick’s first experience on the football field was with Hamlet’s youth league, where coach Clyde Norton, helped lay a foundation for his future success both on the field and in life.
Quick excelled at football, basketball and track and was among the distinguished seniors to graduate from Richmond Senior High School in Richmond County, NC. He was a member of the state champion 4 X 400 relay team and, at age 18, a world-class hurdler. Quick led his basketball team and conference in points that same year and intended to play basketball in college. Recognizing his talent and potential to succeed athletically and academically at a Division I college, Quick’s high school football and track coach, Ron Kroll, encouraged him to attend Fork Union Military Academy before going onto college. Quick recalls that Coach Kroll often said, “Son, you don’t even know how good you are.”

Opportunities for YP’s to get involved at PA-AWWA 68th Annual Conference
At this year’s annual conference, there are some new opportunities for YPs to get involved:
1) Conference Moderators
As a new initiative to get YPs involved and experienced, PA-AWWA is looking for YP’s who would like to volunteer to be technical session Moderators. Moderator responsibilities are addressed in the Attachment. If you have questions or wish to volunteer, please contact Curt Fontaine at 724-755-5950 or at email@example.com.
2) Conference Mentees
For the very newest of YP’s or those who have not attended the annual PA-AWWA conference before, this is a great way to get your bearings as well as make a connection with a more experienced professional. The new mentoring program is set up so that you will be assigned a mentor before the conference who will act as your guide to the conference and hopefully to the industry in general. If you’d like to sign up or have any questions, please email Amy Batdorf at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3) Conference Mentors
If you just read the description for “mentees” and thought to yourself that you don’t need a mentor since you’ve attended the conference a number of times, maybe it’s time you signed up to be a mentor to our younger YPs! This is a chance to make a new friend, share some of your career wisdom and make the conference experience better for our mentees. You can invest as much time as you like, but our guidelines are simply that you make sure to set up a meet & greet with your mentee in advance and then make sure to check in at least daily and be available for questions or support. If this sounds like a fit for you, please email Amy Batdorf at email@example.com.
