"I'm looking forward to this football season and I'm anxious to get started," Brown said. "I'm really excited about this team. We have set our goals for the coming season, and the players are really excited about working toward accomplishing those things.

"This team has a tremendous work ethic, their attitude is really good, and we have some new faces I'm looking forward to seeing," Brown said.
