LOL. But probably not O's fault. I hear the franchise fees are steep.

I think it was bad management as well. The restaurant was always dirty and poorly managed. I agree that the Franchise was also a factor but if it's making money then keep it going. This might be a good location for PANERA who is looking to move.

QND welcomes home Jack Cornell

2 years ago by Paige Traeder

QND held a pep rally Friday afternoon at the QND gymnasium in honor of Quincy native and Super Bowl champion, Jack Cornell

Crowds of people of every age and from all over packed into the QND gymnasium Friday to welcome home Quincy native Jack Cornell. Cornell spoke about his recent Super Bowl experience, his high school experience at QND, and what it takes to play at a high level in the NFL.

From QND to the University of Illinois to the Baltimore Ravens, Jack said it's his dream come true.

"It didn't really pan out the way I thought it would have, but it's not how you get to the league, it's what you do when you get there. And I'm having a blast and enjoying every minute of it."

After all of his experiences and hardships working towards his goal, Jack gave some advice to kids and young people striving for their dream.

"I would say to never doubt yourself. It doesn't matter where you're from or what your background is. Ya know, in the National Football League there's guys from all over the country, from all different backgrounds and is it something that if you want it bad enough that no one can you tell you you can't, only yourself."

Jack says its about the resiliency, mental toughness and being able to survive through tough times. Because he said, when it's getting hard, that's when you know your close to and greatness.
