Season highlights: One of the few returning varsity regulars from the Class 5A state championship-winning 2016-17 team, Brown saw an expanded role performed at an All-Centennial League second team level as he helped Eaglecrest to a 14-11 record and a spot in the Class 5A Sweet 16 in its first season under coach Jarris Krapcha. Brown was one of two Raptors with a double-digit scoring average at 10.7 points per game — up from 3.4 ppg the previous season and with a season-high 20-point effort against Cherokee Trail — and he ranked second on the team in that category, while he led the team in rebounding (5.2) and blocked shots (0.7) per game. Brown recorded his only double-double (15 points, 12 rebounds) in Eaglecrest’s near-upset of No. 1 Rock Canyon in the Sweet 16. He is a first-time A-Town All-Star Boys Game selection and a competitor in the inaugural slam dunk contest.
