Adehkeem Brown, a Senior at Quincy University, is on a quest to show that he is the top Defensive Back in college football.
At Quincy, Brown has become a staple player for the Hawks. His Sophomore year performance led him to a 2nd Team All-GLVC selection, thanks to his conference leading 13 pass breakups. He then topped that performance his Junior year by setting Quincy’s single season interception record with 7. This led the conference in interceptions and was ranked fourth in the entire nation for interceptions per game. Brown’s post season honors included being named 1st Team All-GLVC, Don Hansen’s 2nd Team All-Region, and Don Hansen’s Honorable Mention All-American.
Honors like these do not come without hard work, so he has been using his teammates as motivation to accomplish his goals for next season. “I stayed at Quincy over the summer to train with my teammates because they push me to get better,” Brown said. He has been training with them this offseason, six days a week and two times a day, consisting of running, drills, and lifting. Most importantly, he has been in the film room five days a week studying his position and this season’s opposing Wide Receivers and offensive sets.
As a Senior, Brown wants to go out with a bang and have his best season yet. “I want to show that I am the top Defensive Back in college football, physically and mentality, by dominating my opponents consistently every game,” said Brown. His assets include having the ability to play man coverage on bigger and smaller guys at 5’10” and 190 pounds. He can run and shadow with smaller Receivers, while getting big and physical with taller Receivers. Ultimately, he has proven to create turnovers on a consistent basis, whether it’s making a big play on special teams by jarring the ball loose or being a Quarterback’s nightmare by making a crucial interception.
Brown starts his quest for the best alongside the rest of the Quincy Hawks on August 31st as they take on Midwestern State.
