Robert Quinn Teams Up with Special Olympics

Posted Nov 20, 2011

Robert Quinn has held many titles.  In high school, Quinn earned the recognition of two-time heavyweight state champion for wrestling.  In college, he was selected for the First Team All-ACC.  During the NFL Draft, he became the St. Louis Rams’ number one pick, and in October, he was named NFL Special Teams Player of the Week.  Now, Quinn has become an official spokesperson of Special Olympics Missouri, Inc.

Quinn’s commitment to the organization, whose mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, began with this photo shoot featuring Special Olympic athletes, Cade and Brooke.  Quinn made a personal donation and covered the cost for the installation of a Special Olympics billboard, located on Interstate 64/40, near the Edward Jones Dome.  Quinn will also be hosting a Special Olympics event in the offseason.
