Morgan Park's Standout Junior
Speed kills and that is what Daron Brown brings to the table. The junior athlete from Morgan Park is not a track star playing football, but rather, an outstanding football player who runs track. "I do the 100-meter dash, the 110-meter high hurdles, the 4 x 1 and the 4 x 2," he reported. Brown has recorded as fast as a 10.7 in the 100-meters and has used that speed to wreak havoc on opposing defenses the past two seasons. The 6'1, 190-lb junior started at wide receiver a year ago and quickly established himself as one of the top playmakers in the Windy City. This year, in an effort to get the ball in the hands of their playmakers more, the Mustangs moved Brown to quarterback and he has thrived both as a passer and runner. "Well, I actually like it," he said of the switch, "it is more interesting." Of course, his success and athleticism have not gone unnoticed as Brown has received mail from several of the top programs around the country. "I got a few letters," he said, "Ohio State, Colorado, Stanford, Arizona, Indiana have sent me mail." The Buckeyes were one of the teams Brown rooted for growing up and he is naturally, excited (and a little taken aback) by their interest. "I followed Ohio State and USC," he explained, "I'm interested in Ohio State, they contacted me pretty early in the year, so it was a little surprising." Brown did not go to any summer camps and has not taken any unofficial visits, so his recruitment is still in infancy. He has more important things on his mind at the moment, like winning games. The Mustangs sit at 3-3 and need a strong finish to make the playoffs and Brown will be one of the key players down the stretch. "We have to be executing plays and working together."
