One of the west coast’s best two way players is Long Beach (Calif.) Poly four star offensive guard/defensive tackle Kevin Brown (6-2, 285, 5.0). Brown and his Poly teammates have a very important contest this weekend with Concord (Calif.) De la Salle.
“The only thing that can keep us from winning games is our own mistakes,” Brown said.
If you take a look at how Poly has dismantled everyone they have played so far this season, you would have to agree with Brown.
Poly opened the season by pounding Westchester 45-0. For Poly’s second game the Jackrabbits with De la Salle traveled to Hawaii and participated in the Hawaii classic. Both California teams won the day.
Poly trounced a mistake prone Kahuku in the Hawaii classic 42-16 in the opening contest. Back on the mainland Poly beat Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne 34-20 and last Friday they spanked Rialto 48-0.
The rehearsal is over for Brown and his Poly teammates as they will hook up with De la Salle this Saturday October 12th at Memorial Stadium. The tough Moore League games will follow.
Brown had an ankle sprain so he didn’t play any offense against Kahuku, but look for him to play both ways against the Spartans on Saturday.
Brown has one committed visit to Oregon but the date has not been set. Other schools under consideration for visits are FSU, Ohio State, Michigan, Oklahoma, USC and UCLA.
“I will decide other visits after the De la Salle game,” Brown said.
Brown is being recruited as one could play on either side of the trench in college with the accent on offense. Some schools are talking to him about center.
Brown would prefer to play defense, but at this time it looks like offense will out for his skills on the collegiate level.
What is Brown looking for in a school?
“Great coaching and tradition,” Brown said. “I’m not going to a place just to play for a great program. I want to go to a place where I feel at home and comfortable.”
Brown has incredible strength. Here it is four games into the season and he is benching 390 pounds.
