Henry County High School graduate Brandon Brown recently started his freshman year at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Ga.
Men’s golf coach Frankie Ruiz said he was pleased to announce signing Brown to a full scholarship.
“He won player of the year in 2016 and has lettered twice,” Ruiz said in a statement.
Brown returned the compliment.
“Brewton-Parker was very friendly and welcomed me with open arms,” he said in a statement.
The McDonough resident said he looks forward to his new academic chapter.
“I’m excited about meeting new people and just experiencing the college life,” Brown said.
While a Warhawk, Brown played under the core values expressed by coach Brian Sanders, including academic achievement, integrity, good sportsmanship and respect.
“Practice like you play; always give it your best,” Sanders said in a statement.
Helping Brown with his game – and the ability to trade in his black and gold Henry County jersey for the Barons’ blue and orange – was Tyrone Spaulding, executive director of Golfing For Success in McDonough.
“Brandon began to work very hard,” Spaulding said in a statement. “By the start of his senior golf season, Brandon was well prepared to lead his team.”
Brown’s credentials include playing at the annual Bill Dickey Minority Youth Golf Invitational Pro-Am in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Spaulding helped his daughter, 2012 Dutchtown High School graduate Breanna Spaulding, earn a golf scholarship to Columbia College in South Carolina, where she played for the Columbia Koalas golf team.
