As the Texas A&M athletic department when through a historic transition into its first season of competition in the Southeastern Conference during the 2012-13 school year, Quisenberry was on hand as the Aggie football, men’s basketball and men’s golf teams all each saw increased national media attention with their new conference affiliation. Most notably, the 2013 football season was one for the ages as the Aggies captured the country’s attention en route to an 11-win campaign that culminated in a Cotton Bowl victory and a top-10 finish. Along the way, Quisenberry assisted a department-wide campaign to promote quarterback Johnny Manziel, who became the first-ever collegiate freshman to be awarded the coveted Heisman Trophy. With the promotional help of the Texas A&M media relations office, Manziel joined a growing list of Aggie football players to have garnered national honors in recent years, including Luke Joeckel (2012 Outland Trophy), Randy Bullock (2011 Lou Groza Award) and Von Miller (2010 Butkus Award).

On the hardwood, Quisenberry helped promote senior Elston Turner, who earned multiple National Player of the Week accolades after an attention-grabbing 40-point performance in an Aggie win over Kentucky at Rupp Arena in January 2013 before ending the year with first-team All-SEC honors.

During his first two years in College Station, Quisenberry worked with the A&M baseball team which enjoyed an outstanding run of success on the diamond as Texas A&M claimed the 2011 Big 12 Championship and made a trip to Omaha, Neb., for the 2011 College World Series. Following both the 2011 and 2012 campaigns, Texas A&M's Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park was selected by the NCAA selection committee as a regional tournament host site with Quisenberry serving as the media coordinator for each event.

He also assisted with the Houston Regional of the 2010 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, which was hosted by UH and Rice University at Reliant Stadium.

Quisenberry has also spent time as the Director of Media Relations at West Texas A&M. During his time at WTAMU, he was in charge of the athletics communications for the school's 13-sport athletics program.

In addition to hosting numerous Lone Star Conference championship events, WTAMU was the host site for several NCAA Regional level competitions including the 2008 NCAA-II Women's Basketball South Central Regional Tournament, 2007 NCAA-II Men's Soccer Midwest Regional Tournament and 2006 NCAA-II Volleyball Southwest Regional Tournament, during all of which Quisenberry served as the tournament media coordinator. WTAMU's football team, which was consistently ranked in the Top 10 and claimed the LSC Championship in both 2006 and 2007, was selected as the host team for the opening round of the NCAA-II playoffs both seasons.

Before taking the position at WTAMU, Quisenberry spent one year as a Media Relations Assistant at Texas Tech, serving as the sports information contact for soccer and softball, while helping with game-day duties for Tech football and basketball.
