DAVIS — After years of hard work and plenty of success on the high school gridiron, Davis’ Jared Brown took the next logical step for his career Wednesday afternoon. 

In front of his coaches, friends and classmates, the Wolves football standout officially put pen to paper on a National Letter of Intent to play football for the East Central Tigers in Ada this fall.

After officially making his college choice, Brown couldn’t contain his excitement when it came to speaking about what the future holds for him. 

“It feels good, I am excited,” Brown said. “I’m ready to go, and I’m ready to be there right now.”

Aside from being a standout on the field, Brown was known for his outstanding GPA in the classroom as he managed a 3.95 GPA.

Brown was also voted by his teammates as a captain for the season, and he started in 36 games as a member of the Wolves varsity football program.

He finished this season with 528 yards on 107 carries and eight touchdowns, while also totaling 56 tackles on the defensive line.

For his career, Brown totaled 1,350 rushing yards with 28 touchdowns, along with 179 career tackles on defense. 

One lasting memory Brown said he will always remember from his team as a member of the Wolves football team was against Holland Hall in the 2017 state quarterfinals at Wolf Stadium.

“I will never forget when we beat Holland Hall in overtime my junior year in the quarterfinals,” he said. “That will be my favorite memory here.”

Being a Davis Wolf football player means a lot to Brown, and with the success he has had with the program, those are things he will remember most after graduation.

“I will look back on all the memories,” Brown said. “Playing with my teammates, having the best coaches in the world and playing in a lot of big games here.”
