As a senior, Thomas M. Quinn entered the Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Championships and won the heavyweight title. In the first round, he defeated the tournament favorite, Nick Georgiade of Syracuse, who had won the European heavyweight title while in the army. Former professional Washington heavyweight Marty Gallagher was Quinn’s coach. Gallagher recalled in a Washington Post interview in 1967 that “Quinn did not come to Georgetown on an athletic scholarship and had no previous boxing experience but he was a natural and developed a punishing left hook . . . he was the best college boxer I ever coached and one of the best I ever saw.”
