Pittsburgh Recruit heading to ?

As the results of the June 5th SAT test are now being delivered, several Pittsburgh recruits are going to be learning their fate. The Panther Report recently spoke to RB Windell Brown (6-1, 205, 4.4), a 2003 graduate of Duquesne High School, PA to find out if he made the cut.

Windell Brown received his score from the SAT test and it was not what he needed in order to be eligible this fall. So what are Windell's plans?

"I've decided to attend Lackawanna Junior College," said Brown.

Are the Panther's still in Brown's future plans?

"We'll have to see how things go. I'm going to go there and get everything straightened out and go from there."

Lackawanna is coached by former college and NFL standout Mark Duda and has a reputation as one of the top producers of JUCO talent in the Atlantic US. Bryant McKinnie was a standout for Coach Duda. Bryant went on to the University Of Miami and then became a 1st round pick of the Minnesota Vikings. Miami also benefited from the Lackawanna connection this year as they brought in big time lineman Tyler McMeans.

Did Lackawanna contact you Windell?

"No, I contacted them. One of my friends who also played at Duquesne, Jamel Washington, is going there. So I went and visited yesterday and decided to attend the school."

When does camp start there?

"I think it's either the 12th or the 16th of August."

Brown had an amazing 2002 season that saw him rush for 2,008 yards on 213 carries. He registered 469 yards receiving on 17 receptions and scored 40 touchdowns. As a safety on defense, he was in on 56 tackles and had 10 sacks.

Brown was named to the 1st Team AP All-State Team (small school), Harrisburg Patriot News Platinum 33 Team, WPIAL Class A Player Of The Year, Pittsburgh Post Gazette Class A Player Of The Year, and The Tribune-Review Class A Player Of The Year.

Good luck to you Windell. We hope everything works out for the best.

"Thank you."

The Panther Report will keep in touch with Windell during his time at Lackawanna. Hopefully, the young man gets everything in order and one day gets his chance to play D-1A football.
