Demond Brown Transfers for Senior Year
Demond Brown had great success at Annapolis High School during his sophomore and junior seasons. But after discussions with his parents and a need to do what was best for Brown and his family he has decided to attend Old Mill High School for the rest of his junior season and his upcoming senior season. Brown has received multiple honors for his on-field performance including All-State, All-Metro and All-County over the last two years. Old Mill provides Brown with the factors that his family needed looking ahead. Brown provides Old Mill with one of the best players in the state as they look to defend their championship while filling the shoes of All-Everything player Josh Furman. "I needed to make the move because of some personal family issues," said Brown. "We can save money because it is closer to my home. I was able to play for Annapolis because my dad lived there but it was a hassle and expensive to do it everyday. It was hard leaving my team and friends but it was best for me and my family." The transfer is immediate and Brown will be at Old Mill for classes this coming week. With Old Mill graduating their two feature backs including four-star athlete and Michigan commit, Josh Furman, the door is wide open for Brown to be the primary back on a defending state championship team. "I think I can come right in and make a big impact. Losing a player like Josh Furman and Jason Clements in the backfield in the same season is tough but I will work hard and hope to be the primary running back and take us back to another state championship." Although Brown knew it was the right decision that didn't make it any easier. "It was hard telling my teammates and coaches. They understood and wished me luck next year except when we play them." Brown brings with him experience and success as one of the better players in the state the last two years. As a sophomore, Brown rushed for 1,058 yards and 7 touchdowns. Then as a junior, Brown rushed for 1,345 yards and 17 touchdowns. Another strength Brown brings with him is his ability to perform in the classroom. He currently holds a 3.8 GPA. His success as a student-athlete hasn't gone unnoticed by colleges and Brown is looking forward to a big offseason and getting to know more schools a little better. "I am excited about the offseason," said Brown. "This is the most important one and I am working hard everyday. I am running track now and working on my strength. I am not sure of my schedule right now but I will be attending several camps and combines as well as 7 v 7 passing tourneys. Right now I am most interested in Harvard, Stanford, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland, Georgia and Notre Dame." Scout.com will be keeping close tabs on Brown's progress this offseason and throughout the upcoming season.
