Brown Named MVP at Baton Rouge 7-on-7

Donaldsonville RB/CB Tre Brown earned MVP Honors over the weekend at a Baton Rouge-Area 7-on-7 tournament. As a junior, Brown ran for almost 1,300 yards, but his future in college may lie in the defensive backfield.

"We won the 7-on-7 at Denham Springs and I got the MVP," said Brown. "We went undefeated. The other teams involved were Denham Springs, Zachary, Hammond and Live Oak.

"I had four interceptions in the finals. Most people think of me as a corner on defense, but I played safety at the tournament."

Last year, Brown was a workhorse at running back for the Tigers, carrying 197 times (with 12 touchdowns) and averaging 6.51 yards per attempt.

Donaldsonville had an excellent 2010 season, and most of the Tigers' top players return. The southeast Louisiana program went 9-3 and advanced to the second round of the Class 2A playoffs, where they dropped a 63-12 decision to Calvary Baptist Academy on the road in Shreveport.

"That game was definitely an embarrassment for us," said Brown. "We discuss it every time we talk football."

There were, however, numerous bright spots for DHS last year. The Tigers, who move up from 2A to 3A this fall, defeated Class A state champion White Castle (with LSU signee Ronald Martin and '12 RB Tyre Bracken).

Moreover, Donaldsonville blanked West St. John, 30-0. That lopsided victory becomes very impressive when you consider that WSJ boasted Texas A&M signee Darzil Washington at linebacker and LSU commit Ronnie Feist at defensive end.

What's the outlook for the Tigers in 3A?

"We will be in the same district with St. James and St. Charles Catholic," said Brown. "The St. Charles Catholic game could be for the district championship.

"St. James is a neighborhood rivalry. There's already a lot of talk in the community about the game."

Brown and teammate Devon Breaux, a Tulane commit, will try to outshine St. James RB Kenneth Armant and St. Charles Catholic RB Lazedrick Thompson (another Tulane commit) in those two contests.

In addition, Donaldsonville will step up to the plate against a 5A heavy-hitter early in the season versus Dutchtown and four-star safety Landon Collins.

What's happening with Brown's recruitment?

"I'm getting a lot of interest from Nicholls State and North Texas," he said. "If I get a higher score next time on the English portion of my ACT, I should get an offer.

"I'm going to ULM's camp at St. Amant on Monday and the Southeastern camp on June 13th."

Brown added that some programs are recruiting him as a running back and others as a defensive back.
