Player Spotlight: Jonathan Brown C/O ’22 Defensive End/Tight End

Jonathan Brown is a sensational senior playmaker out of Riverwood High School in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brown plays sparingly on offense as a tight end, but is primarily used as a defensive end for the Raiders.

As the state sack leader as a junior with 19 sacks, Brown continued terrorizing offenses in 2020, and proved he wasn’t a one-hit wonder in 2019.

Brown capped off his illustrious career with a senior season that saw him make 52 tackles, with an astonishing 25 of those being TFL!

Brown also added 13 sacks this season, with 5 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery and an INT, in addition to 2 touchdowns on offense.

Standing at 6’4, 232 pounds, Brown already has great size to play at the next level, with plenty of room to grow when he gets there.

As a dual-spot athlete, Brown also plays basketball for the Raiders and that translates onto the field, with his ability to go up and make the catch at tight end.

Brown has a wingspan of 6’11 and a 9’3 broad jump to go along with a 4.8 in the forty-yard-dash.

A true student of the game, Brown feels like that enables him to be able to standout amongst other players in the country.

“I am a very effective pass rusher,” Brown said. “I can play both the run and the pass very well on defense and on offense, I can run routes with the best of them and I can also block from anywhere on the field.”

Brown has earned many prestigious honors in his career, such as Region MVP, All-State Honors, All-Region Honors, All-State First Team Honors and Preseason All-Class.

For all of his stats and his accomplishments, Brown has earned offers from the likes of Troy, Tennessee State, Kentucky Wesleyan and Hanover College.

With his 3.2 GPA, look for more schools to offer this dominant playmaker. It will be interesting to see where he will end up!
