Quintana recently concluded a standout prep career at Florida Christian High School. The Miami native primarily played as a defender in high school, but also contributed offensively with 21 goals in earning Miami small-school first-team honors.

Aside from his high school accomplishments, Quintana also played for Miami FC Kendall Coalition on the club level and was a member of the United States U-18 men’s national team during the past year.

“This honor speaks highly of Andrew’s talent as well as the hard work that he has put into his game,” said UCF head coach Bryan Cunningham. “We are excited to have Andrew join our program and experience continued success at UCF beginning this fall.”
