senior class knew they were going to be special all the way back from their 8th
"Back in 8th grade our senior class went undefeated
in both football and basketball. We knew then that we were going to be something

Ocean Springs faces
Harrison Central next, and Brown feels like his game is peaking at the right time.
this point of the season, I think I am way above from where I was last year at
this time. In 10th grade, I tore all of my ligaments in my knee. I hurt my fibula
and had to have a plate inserted with 10 screws. Now I think I am feeling more
comfortable. I have more durability and can move a little better. So far, I have
like 20 catches for 380 yards and 7 TD's. I also have 2 punt returns for TD's."

the way she was treated. She thinks if I go to Ole Miss, I will be taken care
This was Brown's first Ole Miss football game to attend. What
were his thoughts?
"I have already known how good they are. I knew
they were playing a lot of ranked teams close. It did not surprise me at how well
they played. They should have won that game."
What did Brown observe
about the Rebels offense?
"They threw the ball pretty good, but overall,
they need a deep threat guy."
What stood out the most during the trip?
just like how well they played, and I always like hanging out with their players.
Me and John Jerry have become good friends. We talk a lot. I just like hanging
out with their players. It is like I am back at home with the boys."
has also had the chance to take in the LSU/South Carolina and Florida/Tennessee
What new did he learn about LSU and Florida during those visits?
much really. I have been close to LSU for a long time. They have been recruiting
me since 10th grade. I expected them to come out like they did. And Florida, I
knew they would be on top of their game for Tennessee."
Who came with
DeAndre on those two trips?
"A couple of my buddies came with me to
LSU and my coach took me to Florida."
What stood out during the LSU
"I couldn't tell you. Everything was exciting. It is always
exciting when I go to their games."
And the Florida visit?
just liked how they came out and threw the ball."
Anymore visits on
"I am not sure yet."
Who else is on Brown's radar?
am not really talking about any of the schools other than Florida, Ole Miss, and
LSU. Those are it right now."
