Norfolk State   Head Coach Latrell Scott  had to be excited knowing that Nhyre Quinerly was back in his secondary again this past season. As a matter of fact  Nhyre was a mainstay in the spartans secondary starting in 34 games in his career with the Spartans. This past season the red-shirt senior racked up a total of 103 tackles, 3 interceptions 5 pass break ups and a total of 8 passes defended. Number 22 also forced a fumble and tallied 79 yards in returns after his interceptions.


The young gladiator paying in his hometown had a team high 47 solo tackles this past season and played his best game in the 48-0 win over Morgan State. When the Spartans suited up against the Bears Nhyre  was ready wrapping up the game with a interception that he returned 48 yards to the house. Despite finishing the season with only 5 wins against 7 losses Quinerly left it all on the field for the Spartans.
