SHAWNEE — Shawnee coach Billy Brown tries to keep a distinct line drawn in dealing with Brayle Brown, his son and starting quarterback. When it's about football, he's the coach. When it's about life, he's the dad. Here's the trick: recruiting is about both, so the line gets blurred at times. "When you're talking to college coaches, it's kind of weird talking about your own kid, and it's probably weird for them hearing it,” Billy said. "But that's really the only time it overlaps like that.” The Browns have spent a lot of time on the road and will spend a lot more in the coming weeks to visit college campuses, attend camps and try to figure out which path will be best for Brayle. "We're hitting all of them in a two-week span,” Brayle said. "It's fun. You only get to do it once, so do all you can. "I think we drove about 15 hours the last few days.” And that was just to visit a couple of Texas schools. He has plans to visit Kansas State as well as a trip to Las Vegas for an Elite 11 regional camp in the coming days. Along with a scholarship offer from Louisiana-Monroe, he also has drawn interest from Kansas, Missouri, Tulsa, Oklahoma and many others. "My favorite is North Texas,” the quarterback said. "They have a good coaching staff. It's kind of a surprise, because they haven't had very good years, but they've got good facilities. They'll get a new stadium for my freshman year.” Before he gets to college, Brayle Brown has a challenging senior season ahead with the Wolves. Shawnee lost virtually all of their offensive starters around Brown. And the team will move up to Class 6A after registering a perfect 10-0 regular season in 5A last fall. On the schedule this year are programs like Jenks, Southmoore, Broken Arrow and Muskogee. "We have a lot of new starters this year,” Brayle Brown said. "They can't let the names Jenks and Broken Arrow intimidate them. That'll beat us before we even start playing.” In such a situation, it will be hard for Brown to replicate the numbers he put up last year — 2,688 passing yards, 894 rushing yards and 42 total touchdowns. But he'll also get the opportunity to prove himself against some of the state's top defensive talent. "That's who I'm gonna have to play against in college next year, so I might as well get used to it now,” he said.
