Brown is a big-play waiting to happen

With his team on the verge of earning a post-season berth, Feather River WR Jamar Brown (6-2, 215) has recruiting start to pick up. He's a physical receiver who has just enough speed to get behind the secondary and when he gets the ball in his hands he's tough to handle in the open field. Brown spoke with recently and updated us on things...

Brown enjoyed a standout prep career at James Island High School in Charleston, South Carolina but was unable to qualify for a D-1 scholarship. His prep coaches had a connection with a Feather River assistant coach who was from the area, so the talented wideout headed west to continue his football career.

"It's a lot different out here on the west coast, but I'm glad I decided to come out here," Brown told "The coaches here are great and the talent you play against every week is top notch so it helps get you ready for the the next level."

Brown is big and physical and takes pride in his ability to get open.

"I always feel like I can dominate the DB that lines up across from me," Brown said. "I'm not cocky, I know there are great players we're facing, but I just have the confidence that I can do that. If I didn't I wouldn't be successful."

So far in seven games this year, Brown has helped lead the Golden Eagles to a 4-4 record by leading the team with 22 receptions for 489 yards (a robust 22.2 yard average) and five touchdowns.

"I have good speed (4.55) and strength (15 reps of 225 pounds) so I'm tough for DBs to handle," Brown said. "One thing I worked on this past offseason was running my routes and being more precise. I want to be explosive all the time and getting in and out of my breaks helps me get separation."

Recruiting had been easing along for Brown, but recently things have begun picking up.

"Right now it's been picking up for me," Brown said. "Middle Tennessee, Colorado State and Eastern Michigan are all talking to me coaches a lot about me.

"I haven't really spoken to them, but they've been asking for my transcripts and film and they want to possibly bring me out for a visit. I haven't set anything up yet though."

Brown is on pace to finish up his work in the classroom in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

This weekend Brown and the rest of his FRC teammates take on American River on the road.
