Super Proud to say that today I was able to present a check to We Will Go Ministries for over $3,100 for the food drive I held back in March as well as all these canned goods. Thank you all so much for everybody that made this possible pic.twitter.com/7Hc4D7DcBZ
Brown, a graduate transfer from Virginia Tech University, has been at JSU since the start of the Spring semester.
He will be competing for the starting spot at quarterback for the upcoming 2023 during the Tigers’ fall camp with Ridgeland High School graduate Zy McDonald and Holmes Community College transfer Phillip Short.
