“They have a lot to offer including a family atmosphere. I like knowing that he will be taken care of there,” she said.

Coach Lennox Charles said he thinks Brown has a lot to offer Brevard’s team as well.

“Most all coaches want someone who can keep up athletically and I believe Jordan can do that,” Charles said. “He’ll have to adjust to the speed of college soccer and improve tactically but his athleticism will serve them well regardless of what position they choose to put him in.”

Brown played forward for Polk County and wrapped up his second season on varsity with the team making it into the first round of state playoffs as the Western Highland Conference’s No. 2 seed to face North Lincoln. Polk lost to North Lincoln 3-0 and ended their season 7-12-2.

“I’m looking forward to how much more he is going to improve at the college level,” Charles said. “Some kids have all the ability but don’t see as much playing time because they aren’t willing to work. This team, and Jordan, especially, worked probably harder than most teams I’ve coached.”
