Henderson’s Patrick “Monsta” Brown Commits to SFA
One of East Texas’ most versatile football players in recent years has made his college commitment. In fact, he’s switched commitments after an under-the-rader initial commitment.
Henderson’s Patrick “Monsta” Brown will join his older brother at SFA, according to former Henderson offensive coordinator and new Pittsburg OC Rickey Joe Meeks.
Brown, who was recently named to two first-team spots on the 2012 ETSN.fm Football Super Team, had committed to Sam Houston State after visiting the Bearkats a couple of weeks ago. But as Meeks said, Brown wants to play with Lamarcus “Pee Wee” Brown at SFA, where the elder Brown redshirted in 2012.
Patrick Brown will also get the chance to play offense at SFA. Sam Houston State was planning to play him at safety, Meeks said.
Brown ran for 1,391 yards and 19 touchdowns on 183 carries as a senior, when he led Henderson to a 9-5 record and Class 3A Division II Region II championship appearance after a mid-season position switch from receiver to quarterback. He also threw for 598 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception and caught 20 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns.
But what Brown became most known for during his high school days is his return ability. He averaged 26.2 yards per punt return in 2012, when he took three punts to the house, giving him nine punt return touchdowns in the last two seasons.
Brown will join John Tyler receiver Justice Liggins at SFA. Liggins recently committed to the Lumberjacks.
Brown (No. 9) and Liggins (No. 16) are both members of the ETSN 25 recruiting rankings.
