WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

"He's valuable to us on both sides of the ball, and we try and rest him on defense because he plays every snap on offense. ... He's got a knack for our option play (with quarterback Javon Brown). That and the fact he's real strong, our strongest player (who) benches about 315 pounds." -- Strom Thurmond coach Lee Sawyer

BROWN ON BROWN

"I love defense, but I do what I have to do to play both ways. ... At first I thought I was doing bad (running the ball), but everything has been going pretty good (lately). ... Javon and I have gotten better -- better at communicating and stuff, and now we are playing real good together. "
