Familiar territory

Bronson Brown repeated this scene of stepping into the end zone 40 times during his Scott County High School football career. Brown, a halfback and defensive back, has announced that he will take his versatile talents to Georgetown College.

Bronson Brown, who rushed for more than 2,500 yards and scored 40 touchdowns in his career as a two-way starter at Scott County High School, has committed to continue his football exploits at Georgetown College.

Brown announced his commitment last week on Twitter. The decision comes late in the recruiting cycle for the 2020-21 season but extends what has been a strong pipeline from the Cardinals to the Tigers in recent years.

He follows defensive back Sam Daniel from SC’s Class of 2020 to Georgetown. Daniel signed in February.

Three 2019 Scott County graduates — Payton Brown, Cade Mullins and Berk Watts — were on the Tigers’ roster last season. Mullins and Watts are second-generation GC athletes.

Other SC alumni of recent vintage to suit up at Georgetown included Clay McKee, Damon Gray, Jordan Kindred and Zach Barber.

Brown averaged more than 10 yards per carry in two seasons as a starting halfback. In his junior year, when the Cards reached the Class 6A state final, Brown racked up 1,494 yards.

He scored a defensive touchdown in both his sophomore and senior seasons at Scott County.
