Kevin Brown, a University High football player, recently was selected to be a part of the NFL's mentoring program, an opportunity exclusive to just four high school football players in the nation this year.
Brown initially was nominated for the program by his coach, Mark Cunningham, and he was later selected after each player submitted an essay.
"I wrote about how a Hall of Famer could change my future, how he could help me become a better leader and support my team," said Brown, who is getting ready for his senior season at Uni. "And, how we could help me out in all areas of my life. Not just in sports but academics, and picking a college."
Brown and the other three honorees will travel to Canton, Ohio the first week in August for the NFL's Hall of Fame game between the Cardinals and Saints and the induction ceremony of the Hall's newest members, Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin and Willie Roaf.
