PeeWee to high school, and now to college football. At the young age of 10, Collin Brown started his football career and now he will officially become a UNK Loper next Fall.
During 4th grade, Brown joined his first football team, the Hastings Chargers. All his life, Collin has been a bit bigger than most of the other kids on his team. That has made it possible for him to play Offensive and Defensive line since his start in the sport. By 6th grade, Collin was truly in love with football. Between his 6th and 7th year of school, Brown realized he wanted to go all to way: To play collegiate. And that dream has now come true.
For the past 5 months, Collin, along with some family support, has traveled all over the midwest visiting colleges, trying to find the right one for him. After many days traveling, football camps, and hard thinking, he made his choice.
As of this week, Collin Brown will officially become a UNK Loper next August. When asked what the deciding factor was, he said, “My head, heart, and gut is at UNK.” He is very excited to be part of a new family. His only fear is the college life that accompanies his choice to play in college.
