Wolverine Brown signs to play soccer with BrevardPublished 10:46am Friday, March 1, 2013
Polk County High School senior Jordan Brown didn’t expect to sign his name to a college athletic scholarship but when the opportunity presented itself he was happy to do so.
“When they called me and said, ‘We might be able to offer you something,’ I was surprised,” Brown said of getting word from Brevard College that they would be able to offer him an athletic scholarship to play soccer. “I’ve always been a heavy baseball player but I’ve steadily improved as a soccer player.”
Brown recently visited Brevard’s campus to take a tour and even play a pick-up game of soccer with some of the school’s current players. He also sat through an organic chemistry class.
“I like that small college feel. I like that the teachers can actually help you and you can have that strong teacher/student relationship,” Brown said.
Brown’s mother, Paula, said she too likes the atmosphere of Brevard’s campus.
