Personal Statement

I am Quentin McCoy. I am a 6’2 point guard in the class of 2024. I currently attend Lindblom Math & Science Academy, in Chicago, IL, and I play grassroots basketball for the Mac Irvin Fire, on the 17u EYBL circuit.

 This past season I started in all 33 games for my high school, varsity team, at the point guard position. We finished with a record of 19-14, while tying for 5th place, out of 10 teams, in the best conference in Chicago, which we were newcomers to this season.

As a young man, I take pride in having a high work ethic and taking every opportunity to better myself. I enjoy learning new things both on and off the court and am always on a constant hunt for new knowledge.

 As a basketball player, my biggest strength is that I love the game. I truly love to play the game of basketball, and that makes me resilient to all challenges that may come on the journey. I pride myself on being mentally tough, and, as a point guard, I strive to be someone that teammates can look to when times get tough. Skillset wise; I love making the right play and running the show. I enjoy putting my teammates in the best positions possible and focus on getting the most out of everybody I play with. 

Additionally, I can shoot the lights out (no exaggeration). I can shoot the ball from anywhere past half-court and can shoot it nearly any way you could imagine; off the catch, off the dribble, off a ball screen, off a pin down, etc. Another one of my strengths is that I can handle the ball. I can handle the ball under pressure. I have both the ability to bring the ball down at any pace and run a set, and the ability to take my defender off the dribble for a basket, when the opportunity presents itself.

Lastly, I am a smart defender. One thing I am working on this summer is being a hound on the defensive end; a Gary Payton type of beast, but, as it stands, I am still a quality tactical defender. I use my length to my advantage and my IQ to make my matchup do the things that make them uncomfortable, and that usually leads to many stops. However, as I said, I am working this summer to take that a step further, so by the time I am playing my first college basketball game I will, no doubt, be lockdown defender. Some other areas I am looking forward to improving in are my physical strength and athleticism. As a younger junior, my body is still developing and I am still growing, so I look forward to improving my physical attributes alongside that, over the next year or so.

Academically, I earned a 4.8/4 gpa my sophomore year, on 6 honors courses and one AP course, and I currently hold a 4.9/4 gpa on 5 honors courses and 2 AP courses. I aim to study journalism and business in college, and so, in addition to a great basketball program, I am also in search of a college that will be able to help me lay the groundwork for a future career in those areas.
