FROM BROWN'S HEAD COACH RAY COLLINS
"Journey Brown ranks among the greatest high school football players that I have seen in 17 years of coaching. He has been blessed with phenomenal speed and vision, as well as great physical and mental toughness. Journey has represented Meadville High and the community of Meadville with true pride and honor. What impresses me the most is that, despite his success, he has always put his family, teammates and coaches first. Journey has been like a son to me and I am so honored to have coached him for the past four years."
