Even when teams have attempted to use double coverages to slow down Brown he has usually been wide open and making incredible catches.
Monday it was announced the All-American junior wide receiver was being nominated for the 2018 C Spire Conerly Trophy which is awarded each year to the best college football player in Mississippi. If Brown is selected he will become just the third player in the trophy’s history to receive it twice. If you recall AJ Brown was the 2017 Conerly Trophy recipient.
