Who will be the top running back in the Jersey Shore Conference next season? Donny Brown of Red Bank (N.J.) Red Bank Catholic will try to make a strong case that he's the one.
Brown stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 185 pounds and has 4.4-second 40-yard dash speed. Last season he rushed for 1,155 yards on 130 carries while scoring 15 touchdowns. He also has very good hands, catching 20 passes for 271 yards. As a defensive back, Brown played every snap of every game and had 53 tackles and two interceptions.
"Right now I like Virginia, West Virginia, Boston College, Iowa, Penn State, Ohio State and Duke. They are the schools that have been contacting me the most."
Brown was a all-division and second team all-county and all-shore last year. He carries a 3.2 GPA.
"I think that I have very good balance and I seem to get yardage after contact. I'm a very hard worker."
