IL Athlete of the Week (Week of September 2, 2019)


Howard Brown, Lincoln Blue Tigers

Junior Quarterback Howard Brown of the Lincoln Blue Tigers is the Interscholastic League Player of the Week for his outstanding play vs. Hogan Prep during Week One of the football season. Brown was 8/12 passing for 212 yards and 3 touch¬≠downs and added 164 yards and a touchdown on just 15 carries. Brown’s punishing running style complemented the speed of his receivers and running backs as he bowled over Hogan defenders.

The Lincoln Blue Tigers now turns their attention to the Southeast Knights, who fell to Excelsior Springs 20-51 Friday, August 30. That game will take place at Bryan Field at 6 p.m. Friday, September 6. (Photos for the story by Brandon McCarty)
