With his high school football career now wrapped up, offensive lineman George Brown is looking forward to his future at Florida.
Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods ended its season on Halloween with a win, but a 5-4 record kept Brown’s team from making the playoffs.
“I definitely would have liked to finish with a state championship and have some more time with my brothers, but some things just come to end earlier than we expect,” Brown said. “But I still had a great season. My coach really liked what I did on the field this year.”
The Rivals250 member has been trying to add weight and muscle to his 6-foot-6 frame throughout high school. He weighed 230 pounds as a freshman but is now up to 275.
“I feel like I’ve gotten bigger and stronger,” Brown said. “I was driving people off the ball really well this year and finishing blocks with pancakes and everything. But I was still athletic enough to kick step and get to the second level. So I definitely became a lot better, but now I have to start all over at Florida and work my way back up.”
Brown is visiting UF this weekend for the South Carolina game. It will be his first trip to Gainesville since late July.
“I’m excited to get back down there,” he said. “It will definitely be good to see the campus again and watch another game in The Swamp. This will be an unofficial visit. I’ll be back down for my official some time in December.”
Brown has been impressed with the Gators this month and thinks they’ll finish the year strong.
“They’re playing really well,” he said. “With the way the offense is clicking now, I truly believe they can win out this season.”
