The 2015 campaign marks Griffith’s third season with the Battery. The Antigua native has proven to be an integral part of the team in past seasons, starting 26 matches and playing a team-high 2,275 minutes in 2014.
In his three seasons with the Battery, Griffith has appeared in 57 games, the majority of which have come at right back. Quinton’s blistering pace and quick feet allow him to play as an outside back or in a more advanced position as a winger. Griffith started 2015 at fullback in great form, earning Team of the Week honors in weeks one and five, but injured his knee in April and underwent surgery. He returned to action in late June, primarily as a midfielder, flashing signs that he would soon return to the form that made him a top MLS prospect.
Before signing with the Battery in 2013, Griffith spent two years with former USL PRO side Antigua Barracuda FC where he scored three goals in 39 appearances. Quinton also serves as captain of the Antigua and Barbuda national team. The versatile defender made his international debut in 2009 and has earned 30 caps, including appearances in the final stages of the 2010 Caribbean Championship and 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier.
