Maryland All-State RB Impresses

2011 RB Demond Brown has used an impressive season to showcase his talents for colleges.

Running back Demond Brown is doing everything within his control to make himself better during his senior year at Old Mill High School.

“You have to be dedicated. You have to stay after practice and do those extra things that put you above the competitors,” Brown said.

Brown played his previous two years at Annapolis High School, where he was a two-time All State performer and rushed for over 1,000 yards each season.

Brown joins the defending State Champions at Old Mill, and is engaging in the work ethic that helped them win last year.

“The players are willing to do more work,” said Brown. “They stay after practice extra hours. They know what winning feels like.”

Brown does whatever it takes to make himself better after practice. He will help linemen push sleds after a long practice or will join the other running backs in their extra drills.

Currently Brown has one offer from Bucknell, but has been in contact with other schools. He is waiting to send his senior films in to certain schools.

Brown has 13 touchdowns this year and is 13 yards away from his third straight 1,000-yard rushing season. He opened the year with back-to-back 200-yard rushing games.

After he finishes this year Brown will send his tapes to Maryland, Kansas State, Boston College, Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Towson, William and Mary, and James Madison.

Brown talks periodically with Terps Assistant Coach Charles Bankins, and living in Maryland has allowed him to see some football games at Byrd Stadium which he says he “loves it.”

Brown definitely plans to visit Bucknell for a game, and then wants to visit with his parents some of the college’s on the list he plans to send his senior films to.

Brown is working hard and his performance at the Chesapeake Bowl tryouts earned him a spot on the South team in the All-Star game on Dec. 30. The game will feature the top players from the region.

“I’m working on becoming a better football player in general,” Brown said. “I learned a new offense, with the zone offense here at Old Mill.”
