We asked Coach Montgomery about former New Hanover wide receiver Trevon Brown who is expected to be an offensive threat once again in Greenville.

“He is a physical talent,” Montgomery said. “I don’t think we’ve been around one with such physical talent especially at his age. We don’t usually compare our players to each other, but I’ll saying in comparing him to ones that I coached in the National Football League he’s definitely has a chance. He is a competitor and he wins all the 50-50 battles.”
