Tony Brown Resilient In Wake Of Injury
During that state title game defeat, brown dislocated his left shoulder… Which kept him out of pads, in Saturday’s 69th Annual Bernard Blackwell Classic.
Nonetheless, he was still introduced as a part of the roster… Having earned his right to suit up… Alongside the best of the best.
After the game, News 25 caught up with the now Gatorade player of the year… Who’s keeping the faith, with a resilient attitude… Even when things aren’t quite going his way.
“It was great and after the game I’m pretty sure I had about 400 messages from a lot of people asking me how I’m doing, am I okay and it was great. I love the support, it’s been a great ride with my brothers and I’m glad I got to be on it.”
– Tony Brown East Central Running Back (Sr.); Gatorade Player Of The Year
“Phenomenal kid, tremendous talent, hard-worker. It was a shame but it’s just part of football and part of life what happened in the state championship game, but he’ll bounce back and he’ll go to college and he’ll have a great collegiate career. I know I speak for myself and all of our coaches, we were just honored to get to coach a kid like him.”
– Seth Smith East Central Head Football Coach (5th Season)
Brown remains un-committed, when it comes to where he’ll be playing next year… But winning Gatorade player of the year should make up for the attention he missed out on… At the all-star game.
