Quincy Russell (Athens, Texas/Trinity Valley Community College) once thought his college path would include burnt orange and white. A former Texas commit, Russell has seen his college career take a detour through the junior college ranks.

A very beneficial detour, no doubt.

Russell, a highly touted defensive tackle out of high school, has lived up to the hype on the juco level and has been a mainstay for Trinity Valley’s stingy defense. The Cardinals are 2-0 this year after defeating then-nationally ranked Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College, 35-7, on Saturday. Trinity Valley currently is ranked No. 6 in the NJCAA national poll.
