Brown roams the secondary for the Gauchos

Saddleback S Aaron Brown (6-1, 215) acts like another linebacker for the Gauchos, leading the team in tackles while garnering notice from several different BCS programs. caught up with Brown recently and he updated us on things including what he likes best about playing so close to the line.

"I love contact and I love to hit," Brown told "I play pretty close to the line, but they drop me back in coverage a lot too. It's fun for me."

After a standout career at Puyallup High School in Washington, Brown started looking around for JC programs that he could play at because he wasn't going to qualify.

Brown and his father found Saddleback to be the right fit and he said he couldn't be happier.

"The coaches here are great and I really fit in well here," Brown said. "I had a good year last year and I ended up first team all-conference and I was honorable mention All-American."

So far, Brown has had a solid follow up to his outstanding freshman campaign. He's managed to post over 40 tackles as well as two interceptions.

With those numbers, schools from up and down the west coast have made it known Brown is on their radar.

"I don't have any offers yet, but a couple schools could be close," Brown said. "Oregon has been sending me a lot of stuff and so has Oregon State.

"Arizona State, UCLA and Louisville have also been after me pretty hard lately."

Brown is on pace to graduate in May of 2009 and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
