Quijaan Lawson, Co-Defensive Coordinator, WRs, Safeties

Kentlake has been my first home as a coach. Started in 2019 with the Wide Receivers, moved to Safeties and Line Backers in 2020.

I graduated from Kentwood high school in 2011, for two years I played at Pima community college in Tucson, AZ.

In high school I lettered 3 years at defensive and offensive line, with both 1st team and honorable mention awards. After high school switched to linebacker and played one season at Pima and redshirted the other before tearing my MCL and moving back home.

If I’m not studying any football resources you can catch me on Xbox playing 2k, Madden, or apex legends.
