Redskins' Brown picks up honors

By

Port Clinton senior forward Jon Brown scored three goals and added two assists, and was recognized Most Valuable Player for the NWOSCAA District All-Star game.

Brown earned a spot on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America all-Region IV team. He was also first-team all-Ohio in Division II after earning a second-team spot as a junior and unanimous Sandusky Bay Conference player of the year the last two seasons.

Brown, who established a Redskins’ career record with 87 goals, attributes his success to his teammates. Port Clinton won the Sandusky Bay Conference each of the last two seasons and advanced to regionals for the first time last season.

It was ranked 10th in Division II in the season-ending poll last season and ninth the year before. The Redskins were 18-2 last season and 16-2 the year before.

“When I have people all around me that play well, you can’t really focus too much on one person because you are going to get beat some other way,” Brown said. “(The team) allows me to get into a scoring position and then play the ball to open space for me to finish.

“We have a great team and without them all on the field playing together, none of this would have been possible.”

Brown’s 45 goals as a senior led the state and established a single-season program record. He added 35 career assists, including 15 as a senior.

Brown finished with 209 career points, including 105 as a senior to set two more school marks. He was district MVP as a senior and first-team as a junior.

Brown was first-team all-conference and second-team all-district as a sophomore, and honorable mention all-district and all-league as a freshman.
