Last year, Bruce High School made it to the second round of the Mississippi 2A playoffs and a major reason they had so much success was the production of starting quarterback Davis Brown
(6'3" 185lbs). Brown threw for 2381 yards with 28 touchdowns and also added 8 scores on the ground. This past Saturday he made his first trip to the home of Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns and came away impressed.
"It's a beautiful place and their facilities are great. I really enjoyed talking to Coach Hudspeth and Coach Johnson. They really seem to have the program going in the right direction. They also invited me back to the Senior Camp on June 9th."
The Trojans have high hopes this off-season and look to improve on their 10-3 record from last year. Going into his senior season, Brown hopes to develop not only as an individual, but to contribute to his team's success as well.
"We have very high expectations and should be ranked in the top 5 in 2A this year. We have almost all of our backs and receivers coming back this year. We lost 3 lineman, but we have people ready to step up and fill the gaps. Our defense should be real stout as well."
Davis knows that there is always room for improvement and is hoping to work on some things to attract interest from DI coaches.
"I need to work on my arm strength and being able to stretch the field. I also need to focus on my reads and check downs. I need to let the coaches know that I know how to play the quarterback position."
Along with Louisiana, Brown has garnered some interest from the two SEC schools from his home state of Mississippi. Davis has already been to three junior days and has a couple of camps coming up in the near future.
"I went to the Ole Miss and Mississippi State Junior Days and have gotten invatations from several schools for their Junior Days. So far UL has shown me the most interest. Right now I'm taking my time and am enjoying the recruiting process and taking it all in. On April 21st I'm going to the Elite 11 Camp in Atlanta and then on the 22nd the Nike Camp as well."
Davis is not only an outstanding athlete, but he also is a star student. He knows that his academics are very important and he wants the coaches to know that he is a dedicated young man who will do whatever it takes to succeed.
"I have a 4.0 GPA and plan on majoring in civil engineering. That will play a key role in the school I choose. I made a 22 on my ACT. I want the coaches to know I am a hard worker and am always willing to learn. I am a student of the game and football is pretty much my life. I love football and truly enjoy playing it, practicing it, and getting ready to play."
