#72, Barrett Brown

Today’s Spotlight is on Defensive Lineman, Barrett Brown.  Barrett started playing football for the Grassland Eagles as a Defensive Tackle and Center, and now wears Number 72 for the Rebels.  His favorite player is Derrick Henry.  He says that his favorite FHS Football memory was the win over Independence, sophomore year.  “The student section rushing the field was incredible.”  When asked what his favorite motivational saying is he said, “A winner never quits and a quitter never wins.”  After graduating next spring, Barrett’s plans are to go on to college.

Here is what his parents, Caroline and Raiford, want him to know:  We are so proud of the young man you are.  Having you as a son has been the greatest gift.  You have many great qualities, Barrett, but watching you work hard to achieve your goals has been inspiring.  Go out into the world knowing that you can accomplish anything and don’t be afraid to dream big.  We love you.   

We have loved watching #72 on the field this year and look forward to seeing him achieve great things.
