Cardinal Newman DB Devonte Brown going JUCO 

By Matt Porter

One of the main weapons in Cardinal Newman’s high-scoring offense will take a detour before playing college ball.

Devonte Brown, who rushed for 621 yards and nine touchdowns last season, will play at Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College. He’ll be a defensive back there.

Brown (6-0, 175) had offers from Western Carolina and Western Kentucky.

Thanks to Brown and several other talents, Newman finished 9-2. Aside from shutout losses to American Heritage and (in the Class 3A regional semifinals) Davie-University, the Crusaders scored more than 24 points in each game.
