Henderson’s Patrick “Monsta” Brown Receives Two New Offers
Versatile Henderson football player Patrick "Monsta" Brown visited a Southland Conference school this past weekend and came away with a new offer.
Sam Houston State offered the 5-foot-10, 170-pound playmaker during his visit to Huntsville, and fellow Southland member Northwestern State offered Brown on Wednesday afternoon. The two schools join Division I FBS programs New Mexico State and ULM as the four schools with offers extended to Brown.
Brown is headed to SFA this weekend for a visit. Brown's older brother -- Lamarcus "Pee Wee" Brown -- plays at SFA.
Dickey Meeks, Brown's high school coach who will become Pittsburg's new coach if approved by the board at a Friday meeting, said Brown may also visit Louisiana Tech within the next couple of weeks. TCU and UTEP have also shown interest.
Brown, who started 2012 at receiver before moving to quarterback, ran 183 times for 1,391 yards and 19 touchdowns, while throwing for 598 yards, three scores, and one interception. He also caught 20 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns and returned three punts for scores, giving him nine return touchdowns during the last two seasons.
Brown, who was recently named Offensive MVP of District 16-3A, led Henderson to a 9-5 record and an appearance in the Class 3A Division II Region II championship. Brown has accounted for 47 touchdowns six different ways — rushing, passing, receiving, punt return, kickoff return, fumble return — during his junior and senior seasons.
Brown is No. 9 on the recently updated ETSN 25 recruiting rankings for the class of 2013.
