Crowell's Jared Brown Signs with WBU

Not many six-man football players get the chance to make the switch to the eleven-man game in college. It's even more rare to see two from the same school in the same year.

But that's where the Crowell Wildcats find themselves, as senior Jared Brown became the second Wildcat to sign a football scholarship this year, inking with Wayland Baptist on Wednesday.

He joins teammate Mitchell Parsley, who signed last month with Texas A&M-Commerce.

Brown was an all-around threat as he helped the Wildcats to their second-straight state championship this past season, totaling 29 offensive touchdowns while finishing third in the area with a hundred and five tackles, and recording five interceptions and three fumble recoveries.

"It's very special," Brown said Wednesday. "I'm glad I get the opportunity to play at the next level, because most small schools, especially six-man schools, don't get looked at by colleges whatsoever. And it's just a great opportunity to get to go to the next level and play."

Crowell head coach Nathan Hayes said he is hoping to get at least one more senior signed by the end of the school year.
