Beddingfield (Wilson, NC) defensive end/tight end Everette Brown is ready for his team’s first regular season game, which takes place next Friday. The senior is excited about his team’s potential, saying they are looking good on offense and defense right now.

“I’m feeling real good about our team,” Brown said. “We had our first scrimmage this week, and I think we did pretty good. Our defense looks real good. We’re really fast, and everyone is flying to the ball. Offensively, our passing game has been effective. Our linemen are young, but if they can come around, then I think we’ll have a real good team.”

Of course, Brown is a big-part of Beddingfield’s success. This year, he moves back to his original position of defensive end after playing middle linebacker for the better part of last season.

“I’m playing defensive end this year,” Brown said. “Last year a lot of teams were running away from my side of the field. We’ve spent the off-season trying to balance our defense out, and I think we’ve done it. Teams aren’t going to be able to run to just one side this year.”

Offensively, he is not too bad either. Brown plays tight end, and caught 3 passes in a scrimmage earlier this week. He has the potential to play both defensive end or tight end on the next level.

In addition to being very talented, Brown is a hard worker as well. He has improved his strength over the off-season, adding close to 10 pounds of muscle in the process.

“I’ve improved in the weight room,” Brown said. “I weigh 238-pounds now. I can bench press 340 pounds. As you know, I had a wrist injury earlier this year. Once that healed and I got to get in the weight room, I did pretty good.”

Recruiting-wise, Brown admits that not much has changed since his last update. He has still not narrowed his list of schools, but believes he may be close to doing so.

“Not really,” Brown said when asked if anything had changed in his decision-making process. “I’m going to try to narrow down my list to see where I’m going to take my visits. At this point, I can’t really say who I’ll definitely visit. Me, my parents and my coach are talking about that right now. The way things are going, I could have some official visits set in the next two weeks.”

Brown will make several unofficial visits in addition to his official ones. His first unofficial visit for a game will be to Tallahassee, Florida, where he will see Miami take on Florida State on Monday, September
