Big Mike Headed to UVA-Wise

Senior​ ​Micah​ ​Brown​ ​(a.k.a.​ ​Big​ ​Mike)​ ​recently​ ​received​ ​college​ ​scholarships​ ​to​ ​multiple​ ​schools based​ ​on​ ​his​ ​outstanding​ ​performance​ ​in​ ​CHS​ ​sports. 

          

The​ ​offers​ ​came​ ​from​ ​UVA-Wise,​ ​Norfolk​ ​State​ ​University,​ ​and​ ​Alderson​ ​Broaddus​ ​University in West​ ​Virginia.  

                     

He​ ​played​ ​both​ ​basketball​ ​and​ ​football​ ​in​ ​high​ ​school​ ​and​ ​has​ ​said​ ​he​ ​really​ ​wants​ ​to concentrate​ ​on​ ​football​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future.​ ​He​ ​will​ ​attend​ ​UVA-Wise​ ​in​ ​the​ ​fall. 

                    

Brown’s​ ​high​ ​school​ ​coach,​ ​Alonzo​ ​Ricks,​ ​explained​ ​why​ ​he​ ​first​ ​picked​ ​Brown​ ​to​ ​be​ ​on​ ​his football​ ​team,​ ​“Look​ ​at​ ​him,​ ​he​ ​was​ ​a​ ​big​ ​young​ ​man​ ​back​ ​then​ when​ ​I​ ​met​ ​him.​ ​You​ ​could​ ​see the​ ​growth​ ​and​ ​maturity​ ​in​ ​him​ ​once​ ​he​ ​got​ ​outside​ ​on​ ​the​ ​field​ ​playing​ ​with​ ​the​ ​varsity​ ​guys​ ​his freshman​ ​year,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​just​ ​know​ ​it’ll​ ​be​ ​a​ ​matter​ ​of​ ​time​ ​before​ ​he​ ​would​ ​evolve​ ​and​ ​be​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the best​ ​around.” 

                    

Brown​ ​has​ ​been​ ​playing​ ​football​ ​ever​ ​since​ ​he​ ​was​ ​a​ ​freshman​ ​and​ ​he​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​it​ ​as long​ ​as​ ​he​ ​can. 

                  

“If​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​young​ ​people​ ​had​ ​that,​ ​they​ ​might​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​go​ ​further​ ​in​ ​life,​ ​but​ ​he​ ​has​ ​it​ ​right​ ​now, and​ ​I​ ​pray​ ​that​ ​he​ ​continues​ ​that​ ​and​ ​keeps​ ​growing​ ​in​ ​that​ ​direction,”​ ​said​ ​Ricks. 

                           

Ricks​ ​says​ ​Brown​ ​has​ ​a​ ​great​ ​attitude​ ​on​ ​and​ ​off​ ​the​ ​field,​ ​and​ ​wants​ ​the​ ​best​ ​for​ ​him. 

                    

Even​ ​though​ ​Brown’s​ ​high​ ​school​ ​career​ ​is​ ​ending,​ ​he’s​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​be​ ​successful​ ​in​ ​college.
