Coach Brown acts as program coordinator and head coach guiding the program toward the team goals set forth by the players and captains. He believes that strong character and ethics will serve the team beyond sheer athleticism or ability, not that great ability isn’t a good thing. He will push players to perform and reach their full potential while under his tutelage so that they might begin their own teams or fit immediately into a high-ranking college program.
