ARCADIA - Jesse Brown, Hamilton Heights' senior, has signed a letter of intent to play football for the Marian University Knights in Indianapolis, Indiana this fall. He is the son of Jeff and Angie Brown.

Marian University is a member of the Crossroads League and Mid-States Football Association (MSFA).

Brown selected Marian University to play football and pursue a degree in Elementary Education because he said he felt it was the best place where he could grow academically, athletically and socially. Marian's Elementary Education program is nationally recognized and accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and nationally recognized by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI).

The Knights finished its regular football season undefeated and won the MSFA Mideast title. Playing football for the Knights is a bonus toward his long-term aspirations of becoming an elementary school teacher and coach.

Brown, a multi-sport athlete (football and track), helped the Huskies football team to a 29-14 record and three conference championships. He was named to the 2016-17 All-Conference Team, Leading Receiver, Offensive Player of the Year and named a Regional All Star. In 2015-16 Brown received a 2015-16 All-Conference Honorable Mention, named the Leading Receiver, and Most Outstanding Back. And, as a senior, he was just recently selected as an IFCA North All-Star.

Brown, who has been passionate about football since the day he started playing, credits his family, friends and teammates for motivating and inspiring him to be the best he could be on and off the field. Brown has earned this opportunity to take his game to the collegiate level by working hard every year to be the best player possible and by making valuable contributions to the football and track teams during his tenure.

Brown is a member of the Lapel Baptist Church youth group.

"Jesse has been an absolute pleasure to coach because he has not only been a great player for us over the last four years (he started as a freshman) but he is just a great kid. He is one of the most unassuming people that I have had the pleasure to coach. You don't always see that quality in players of his caliber. You win in football with players like Jesse, but most importantly you win in life with people like Jesse. Because of the young man that he is on and off the field, I can't wait to see what his future holds at Marian and beyond," said Mitch Street, Hamilton Heights head football Coach.

"Jesse has been a major contributor to the success of our football and track programs his entire high school career," said Kurt Ogden, Hamilton Heights athletic director. "His talents on the football field have allowed the offense to be multi-dimensional the past four years and he has solidified the defensive backfield as well. As a track athlete, he has provided multiple points in the sprints, relays and long-jump since he was a freshman. Those contributions will be sorely missed and hard to replace. Marian University is fortunate to get a top-notch athlete and an even better person. We wish Jesse well as he continues his football career at Marian."
