Last year Charles Herbert Flowers High School produced two Division I-A players in Navy-bound Jarren Brown and Syracuse-bound Michael Kay. This year one of their top players in linebacker Brandon Killebrew, an athletic defender who backed it up on the field with very good production as a junior.

Brandon Killebrew is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound middle linebacker from Springdale, Md., and is certainly an impressive physical specimen having been timed at 4.52 in the 40-yard dash and 4.2 in the short shuttle. He also boasts a 38-inch vertical leap and can bench press 225 pounds 26 times. Add his production from 2007 to that mix of numbers and you have a player who should find his fair share of scholarship offers this year.

“Right now I am getting the most contact from Maryland, Navy, Syracuse, Penn State and Texas A&M,” Killebrew stated. “There are other letters coming here and there, but those are the main schools right now.”

“I camped at Penn State last summer and the atmosphere is really nice out there,” Killebrew explained. “My brother is a student there, so I have been there plenty of times and feel right at home. I get along well with my recruiter Coach Mike McQueary and like their tradition of being a hard-nosed, blue-collar, hard working program.”

“My teammate Jarren Brown is going to Navy and they said they plan on visiting me later this spring or summer. I don’t know too much about them, however I did just send them some information and know they play schools like Army and Notre Dame.”

“Another teammate of mine, Michael Kay said that Syracuse is going to need some linebackers next season,” Killebrew stated. “They are a growing program and Michael has had nothing but great things to say about them, so I would like to camp there this summer.”

“I definitely plan on camping at Maryland this summer,” Killebrew added. “Coach James Franklin came into my school recently and talked to several of us about the football program and school. He told me to keep in touch with him. I have been to Maryland a few times and just know that they are almost always in a bowl game.”

As a junior, Killebrew recorded 110 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and forced a fumble. He also defended seven passes and intercepted one. This was in nine games.
