Things Going Good

Former Mississippi State football player Michael Brown has things headed in the right direction.

Former Mississippi State football player Michael Brown, who was sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to the felony charge of Possession of a Firearm on Educational Property this past spring, said things are going great.

"I'm finishing my degree with some online courses this summer," said Michael, who is back home in Georgia. "I have about four or five to complete this summer."

He's already planning his next course of action once he's completed his classes.

"Within the next two to three weeks I plan on picking out a Division I-AA school to attend this coming year," said Michael Brown, who was projected to be an All-SEC candidate going into his senior season at Mississippi State. "I have two or three in mind right now."

He is confident that he will do well no matter which school he chooses.

"I want to go in and do well and, hopefully, dominate," said Michael.

Once his season's over with, he hopes the NFL will come calling.

"I hope to do well enough to go in the NFL draft next year," said Michael, who, according to his former coaches at Mississippi State has the talent to be a potential second-round draft pick.

Look for another update on Michael sometime in July.
