A National Audience tuned in on Friday night to catch the match up between Dekalb Co rivals…
Mack Ready for the Challenge
"It's been a little frustrating to face eight and nine man fronts but that's what it is. As long as Mack is here teams are going game plan to try and stop him."
One of those teams will be Stephenson as they take on MLK High School this Friday night. Brown talked about the excitement level he has facing a team as talented as Stephenson.
"We can't worry about all the cameras and distractions that are going to be out there. I believe in our team and we are ready for the challenge ahead of us."
Brown is a very quiet and humble person off the field and he and the rest of his teammates have had this game circled for a long time.
"To play a team the caliber of Stephenson with that much talent is going to be a great challenge for us. We have worked hard all year and need to go out and play our A-game and don't worry about anything else."
In addition to only playing a handful of quarters this season Brown also had a few touchdowns called back. I had a chance to see one of those runs against then No. 1 ranked SW Dekalb in the season opener. Brown showed great patience through the line making defenders miss then put a move on the safety leaving him diving for air as he went untouched into the end zone. It totaled 26 yards and happened in a blink of an eye. When Brown gets into the open field there is not a more dangerous running back in all of America. He possesses great speed and power but also has vision, balance and acceleration and that will be on display against Stephenson in this weekend's contest.
