Coaches Quotes: “The 2012 Western Brown Football Team will be full of speed. Gunnar Woodyard, Jake Lawson, and Brady Brooks (team Captains) are all returning and will be playing on both sides of the ball. The three captains have started since their sophomore year. The Quarterback position will be key as we replace all-state QB Nick Woodyard who broke every passing record at the school. Devyn Wood will fill the position. He has started varsity since being a freshman at WR and FS. He is an intelligent student athlete who will be a great example for three-sport athletes.”

“The Offense will be throwing the ball around as we have done for the last couple years. We will spread the wealth to each of the key guys who are: Jake Lawson, Gunnar Woodyard, Christian Dawson, Jarred Haggerty and some key sophomores. The run game must improve to have a successful season.”

“Defensively, Jake Morrison will be the LB replacing all-city Spencer Howard. He has had his best off-season, and is working to his potential to be a great defensive player for the Broncos. The defense will not be big, but it will be speedy and nasty and get to the ball. They key to success will be to creating turnovers and 3rd down stops.”
