one of those perplexing things in sports that,

Despite mistakenly killing the grass on Old

Main Hill in October, Utah State University’s

facilities department has managed to make the

hill green once more.

Shane Richards, Landscape Operations and

Maintenance manager, said the grass is 60

percent grown in and by the end of the month

should be 100 percent grown. He said the

speedy recovery of the foliage on Old Main

“Germination is getting the seeds to crack

U18 European Championships.

“He plays like the biggest guy on the field,”

“BROWN” FROM PAGE 1 the stark reality of it all makes Brown’s belief in

himself understandable — why would he stop now after coming so far?

“It was hard growing up,” Brown said. “Moth-

er’s a single mother raising five kids in a single-bedroom home, sleeping in one bed growing up. My older brother, he was in the military

so I ended up moving in with him and he ended up taking in with me, and leading me to the right path. Where I’m from? It’s dangerous where I’m from. Lotta killin’ and shootin’ and

stuff going on down there. My mom didn’t want me getting into all that.”

After starting youth football alongside his

twin brother Brandon at age nine, it didn’t take long for Brown to decide what kind of player he aspired to be.

“Growing up I looked up to Devin Hester,”

Brown said. “I always wanted to be a receiver

and a kick returner because I just thought ‘that’s my specialty’, and I knew I could make plays there.”

If the idea of a diminutive speedster from Ft.

Lauderdale, Florida, returning kicks in an Ag-

gie uniform has a strangely familiar feel to it, it’s because that same description applies to former first-team all-Mountain West return spe-

cialist Bruce “Jojo” Natson, who was dismissed before his senior season for repeated violations

of team rules. Natson provided USU’s special teams with an explosive punch for three sea-

sons — despite being no more than a 5-foot-7, 151-pound blur.

“Jojo, he’s from where I’m from down in that

area,” Bernard said. “He was ballin’ when he was there, and I know I can ball too.”

Though primarily used as a dangerous punt

returner, Natson also snagged more than 1,000 receiving yards over the course of his Aggie career, providing some evidence suggesting com-

pact playmakers can be unique weapons on the field.

Brandon, a defensive back for the Shasta

Knights, believes his twin’s stature doesn’t hold him back.

Brandon said. “The whole size thing, I think it

gives him a chip on his shoulder. He’ll hop right up after a big hit like ‘oh hell that was nothing.’”

Bernard insisted he’ll make plays wherever

he plays.

“They put me on kick return I’ll make plays,”

he said. “Punt return, I’ll make plays. Receiver,

slot, outside — I’ve been doing it all my life. When coaches talk about size, I’m like ‘I don’t

care, I can move as fast as those 6’4 players you know? He’s just taller, what’s the difference?’”

Easily the smallest member of USU’s 2014

squad, the key to Natson’s success at Utah State

- and occasionally cause for panic among Aggie fans - was his fearless approach to turning upfield and somehow hitting another gear to escape holes as they closed.

“One thing that stands out is Brown’s speed,”

said Gio Perez, who coached Brown during the one year he played at Everett Junior College in Washington. “You can’t coach speed.”

Other uncoachable qualities seem to surface

anytime someone talks about Brown. Coach Perez mentions his willingness to be a good teammate and ability to overcome adversity. Bran-

don talks about his brother being a humble kid, driven by positivity even in bad situations.

“People see the good that happens on the

football field, but they don’t see the struggle,”

Brandon said. “Sleeping in garages, not eating at night, we just keep that to ourselves. After all the shit we went through he just keeps pushing, stays positive to get to a better position.”

Cliche though it may sound, it’s Brown’s un-

willingness to quit that’s brought him to where he is now — breaking Shasta’s single-game receiving yards record, updating his online scout-

ing profile and buying a ticket to Salt Lake City

to find his way up into an FBS roster. Despite

arriving in Salt Lake without cleats to play in and being forced to hitch a ride to camp, Brown’s never been the type to define himself by what he lacks.

“The process, it’s hard,” Brown said. “You’ve

got some coaches telling you I guess what you

just want to hear. I was supposed to get offers

from a couple schools, but nobody came

through. When I get up there, I’m gonna give it my all when I go to camp, I’m gonna be holding

nothing back at all because this is something I’ve always wanted.”

Brown can think of at least seven different

Division I coaches who discussed making him an offer before going silent.

“Despite everything, he’s still chasing his

dream,” Perez said. “Anytime you fly from Florida to Washington to play football, that’s dedi-

cated. A lot of young men would’ve quit by now.”

Brown now stands alongside Chris Johnson’s

40 time as another one of those perplexing things in sports. Odds are not favorable on Brown becoming the next CJ2K, and his num-

bers on paper are still only numbers. There will yet be coaches who tell him there isn’t room for a small guy on the roster. There will probably

be more weekends spent hitchhiking to camps and borrowing cleats.

That’s probably not going to change his

mind.

“The football field, that’s like another home

for him,” Brandon said. “All he’s about is foot-

ball. That’s what he really wants to do. Just put the ball in his hands.”
