Derek Brown, Merritt Island High School (Merritt Island, FL). TE/DE 6’7” 235 lbs.
Brown is a punishing blocker with the moves of a wide receiver. With 4.6 speed, Derek also returns kicks and is a standout on defense. This season Derek caught 27 passes for 411 yards and 3 TDs. He is also a member of the Mustangs basketball and track teams but still maintains a solid B average with hopes of a career in corporate Law or Business Administration.
