GREENVILLE, NC (WWAY) — Former New Hanover wideout Trevon Brown is supposed to be the one of the main targets this season in the East Carolina passing game, but Brown can’t catch passes if he’s on the sideline. Unfortunately that’s where he was for Saturday’s season opener against Western Carolina. Will Brown be able to play this weekend against NC State? Head coach Scottie Montgomery addressed that on Monday with a brief statement. “I’m very hopeful,” Montgomery said. “I won’t be speculating to say anything more than that. We’ll have a better grasp and understanding of it on Wednesday of this week.”
GREENVILLE, NC (ECU) – East Carolina junior wide receiver Trevon Brown will not participate in the Pirates’ season opener against Western Carolina Saturday in order to ensure he meets full eligibility standards for game day competition.
Brown’s status will be re-evaluated next week before a decision will be announced regarding his status for the NC State contest on Sept. 10. The precautionary measure followed a standard eligibility review of submitted rosters to ECU’s compliance division.
Brown, who has played in 17 career games with 55 receptions for 760 yards, emerged from training camp as East Carolina’s projected starter at the “Z” outside receiving position. He will be replaced by senior Jimmy Williams in the Pirates’ lineup.
