The most underrated player in the country Paris Brown has actually been playing at a high level for a very long time. Now he is just a point where everyone knows his name. This past year in the GMSAA Paris went to work with almost 2,500 yards and over 30 TD’s and a GMSAA Championship, he left no doubt in everyones mind as he had one of the best seasons in the country.
GMSAA League is slowly becoming one of the better middle school football leagues in the country and Paris dominated week in and week out. Even when the team went loss games to South Cobb and North Paulding. Paris and his McEachern Indian teammates never had any doubt in what they could accomplish they just had to make sure they needed to focus on getting back to the fundamentals to do a better job on the field. When Paris was asked how did he believe the season would go for his team and also individually before it started this was his response. “We are working hard enough to win a championship and build something special. Individually I am trying to be the best player on the field in every game”.
During the Hillgrove game that us just what Paris was as he was running like a man possessed. His favorite running backs are Melvin Gordon formally of Wisconsin and Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks. Its funny he would pick those two because he is a mix between both of them. Paris is a one-cut runner who hits the hole hard as he is quick to make a decision. In the second and third level he is at his best because it is very hard to tackle him up high as defenders are running beside him trying to pull him down. Near the goal line he can either use his speed to beat you to the edge or he can stick his nose in there to tough out the double of yards needed for the touchdown.
This offseason Paris is attacking his weaknesses as he continues to improve his pass catching by playing with the Adidas 7v7 team and also working out with one of his favorite workout partners Paris Brown Sr. who has watched his son from day one develop into a beast. Already a go to receiver in the passing game Paris is taken advantage of being with the 7v7 to work on his route running and catching passes further away from the line of scrimmage.
The 2014 Turman Award winner, which is an award given to the best player in youth football is excited about the next level as we at Born To Compete feel it is an amazing fit for him. For the past couple of years McEachern High has had the luxury of having Taj Griffin the 5 star running back taking handoff for them. Soon it will be Paris turn and both runners posses the same ability and with Coach Hockman on the sideline he will make sure to get the best out of Paris so that he can help the team be successful.
Once considered as an after thought, now he is a household name. Not to bad for the most underrated player in the country.
