During Jets training camp, a number of players will be sharing their thoughts and experiences from their first NFL season.
Rookie wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was the Jets’ sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. The California native and University of Nebraska graduate is listed at 6 foot 2 and 225 pounds.
Early in camp, Enunwa battled a hip injury, but credited his support staff — both with the Jets and with his family — for helping him come back from it to continue working and improving during his first training camp…
Being in Cortland was like being back in college. It was great, because you knew everybody in the dorm, whereas in college, you don’t know anybody and you just kind of hang with your roommate.
At Cortland, on off-days, we were usually just hanging around in the hotel lounge where they put us up or we might go see a movie. My sister lives in New York so sometimes I visited her. But, for the most part, it was just nice to relax.
A lot of the guys play video games, but with the playbook being something new to me, I wanted to buy a new game system, but I am going to wait until I make the team, so I can feel more secure with the playbook first.
Thankfully, I don’t have any rookie stories yet. I’ve been pretty lucky to not have anything happen to me as a rookie yet, but I don’t want to speak too soon, I still have a whole year of being a rookie! We’ll see how it goes.
It’s cool to get out and hang around with all the guys — all the older guys, especially. It was a good experience out there for me, on the field and off it.
Enunwa had 15 touchdown receptions over his four years as a Cornhusker, with 12 of them coming in his senior season. He racked up over 1,500 yards, with half of them coming in his fourth season in red and white.
He was the team captain in 2013 and was named the offensive MVP. He was named the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl MVP after a 4 reception, 129 yard game, including a 99-yard touchdown reception.
