John Horn High School Basketball (Class of 2008)
Through college success and NBA dreams, Quincy Acy has never forgotten his roots in Mesquite. The forward averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game throughout his tenure at Horn High School, leading the team to its first-ever playoff berth as a junior. Ranked as the 80th overall prospect, Acy earned a scholarship to Baylor University. At Baylor, he boasted 100 career victories and established the program’s record for career games played. The 2011 Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 37th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Acy would go on to play for the Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns before leaving to compete overseas. Despite the busy schedule of an NBA player, Acy established and maintained his Quincy Acy Foundation Basketball Camp. Held at Horn High School and hosted by Acy, this free camp provided fundamental teaching and an environment to play for boys and girls in the Mesquite community.
