Sunset High School is home to a very good football team this season and the Apollos are getting ready to move on into the playoffs for the second season. Led by some really tough Seniors the boys in Purple are formidable and are going to take a solid shot at proceeding deep into the playoffs.
One of the top athletes in the Region this year is Josh Brown who is a Senior for Sunset. The 6’5″- 250 lb Tight End and Defensive End also is being used as a tackle on the offensive line and making his presence known all over the field. The big man is impressive finishing blocks, pressuring QB’s, and forcing running backs inside on plays designed to go wide.
Josh was sitting on a nice offer from Northern Colorado and then landed a PSU offer this Summer which we were there to watch happen. Pretty cool. About 3 months has past and Brown has decided to take Coach Burton up on his offer.
“I am going to PSU for College. And I could not be happier,” said Brown who called us last night.
He did not have a lot more to say other then his Mom was really happy as she can see his brothers play youth and High School ball next Fall and still see his home games! Family is a big deal at the Brown household and this decision has him being about 8 miles from home! Somewhere he plans to come for meals and some help with laundry next Fall.
“I am glad this decision is over. It is all about the team and the playoffs so this is it. I love this team and group of guys and I really like our chances because we have just continued to get better and better. It is going to be a lot of fun!”
Congrats to Josh Brown and the Vikings. This is another great local kid for the Big Sky Viks and he should be a good one for sure!
