Orlando, FL – Rising Sophomore, Colby Brown might have been one of the youngest quarterbacks at the recent Nike Elite 11 Camp in Orlando but he proved he was also one of the most accurate. Brown plays for the nearby Olympia High School in Orlando and even started the last three games for the playoff bound varsity team last year as a freshman.
Brown took full advantage of his opportunity at the Elite 11 finishing in the top 5 of the 55 total quarterbacks and made it to the accuracy challenge competition held at the end of the camp. Brown felt being one of the youngest out there might have actually been a small advantage.
“Being the youngest QB takes away some pressure, which is good, but I still expect to go out there and do better than anyone else. When asked how he rated his performance, Brown said, “I feel like I did pretty well and God really blessed me but I started off pretty slow in the final round.”
Brown has been working with QBA for the last three years, attending 4 camps, has worked privately with Master Certified Coach Will Hewlett and is in the ProspectFit program. “Their throwing mechanics are the best. There is no way I could have done as well as I did without them and without the help of Coach Gulla at Olympia who is a big believer in Coach Slack and QBA” said Brown.
The future is bright for the young quarterback. Several weeks ago, Brown received his first letter from an interested school. Not just any school, mind you. Brown’s first letter came from Notre Dame.
“It was really exciting,” Brown said. “I just didn’t know what to do, I was like ‘wow.’ It just came out of nowhere, so it was really exciting.”
There is no reason to think that many more letters won’t come for Brown. When asked to sum up his experience with Elite 11, NFA and QBA and football in general, all Brown wanted to say was, “God blessed me.”
