The season for South Pointe High School had its ups and downs. Fortunately for them their ups came down the stretch as they powered to another AAA state championship. Despite a 3 game losing streak the Stallions emerged with a 21-7 victory over Hartsville to raise another state title trophy. We caught up with one of their top prospects, Quay Brown, who played a pivotal role in that victory.
We spoke with Brown, a 6' 170 pound wide receiver, recently and he broke down how things went for him this past season and which schools he's heard from so far with his recruitment.
"I had 42 catches for 676 yards and 10 touchdowns this season."
"I'm going to the Adidas camp in Chicago, the Rivals camp in May, then I'm going to Clemson in June. I plan on going to some others as well."
The 2016 prospect talked about what his current strengths and areas for improvement are also.
"Right now I would say that having big hands is one of my biggest strengths. I'd say being able to catch the ball no matter where it is is one of my biggest strengths."
"To get better I want to increase both my speed and strength."
Brown and South Pointe saw a bunch of tough teams and prospects this season but one in particular stood out to him the most as the toughest he faced.
"The toughest guy I played against was Traevon Hinton from Northwestern. That's my best friend and my brother. We grew up together but what made it so tough was controlling my emotions since it was my first time going against him. He moved from South Pointe to Northwestern this past season so it made it hard for me to control myself. It was like a fight you have at home with your big brother."
The Stallions emerged with another state championship this season in the AAA ranks and Brown played an integral part in winning that title. He broke things down for us as to how it felt when many didn't give them a shot.
"It was great man. With people expecting us to get beat by A.C. Flora and once we won, we just came together and said why stop here and to just go and win it all. We had fights at practice which was on purpose because it got us fired up! Me winning MVP has to be one of my greatest memories so far in my career. They thought I was gonna be the man who broke them apart but all season when my number was called, I had to show up so it was a big game so I couldn't let my teammates and coaches down."
In order to win back to back state championships next season we asked Brown what it would take of he and his Stallion teammates to do so.
"Playing together. We got a good group coming back and we have the pieces to get there. My personal goals are to win another state championship and make all-state. Hopefully after this year I will get some offers and by next year I will have even more."
There are other schools Brown wants to hear more from including Clemson, South Carolina, Wake Forest, Kentucky, and Louisville. Looking ahead to college the 6'0 170 pound wideout knows what he'll look at closely when choosing.
"To be honest, right now I'm just having feelings for some schools and I'm scheduling visits for some schools. I sent a list of schools my highlights and I've talked with some of them and they are telling me that they want me to come to their camps and that's what I'm going to do."
One school Brown has already visited is NC State. He talked about his time in Raleigh during the trip.
"Me and Traevon Hinton went to visit NC State together back in December. I'd say visiting the facilities and school had to be my favorite part of the visit."
