When you think of an ideal basketball player, you do not think of Aaron Brown. Someone at 6’0” and 145 pounds has overcome a lot of doubt throughout his career to becoming a varsity captain.

Coming into the season, pressure was on the captains to maintain the winning environment that had been around the team previously.

After a tough loss to Wood by 1 point, Aaron’s main focus was to regroup the team and get them ready for an important game against Armijo. During the week, Aaron rallied his team and practiced hard with extra energy to prepare them for the big matchup.

The day of the Armijo game, Aaron Brown went through his usual routine of listening to his favorite music while getting his mind right. Aaron was not going to let anything stop him from achieving the win against his cross town rival. During the game, Aaron scored 4 points in the first two minutes to get his team off to an early start, “We came in there with a game plan and we practiced just enough to get the job done.” Aaron finished the game with 16 points and 5 assists in a win by 20 points against Armijo. Aaron was very excited for the game and felt as if it was a message to the league, “ I just want everyone to know we’re coming for them.”

Off the court Aaron has the same mindset: he wants everyone to know he’s coming. With college right around the corner, he wishes to continue to play college ball at Northridge or San Diego State. He’s spent his entire high school career preparing for this season and beyond. He hopes to make the playoffs and win the league in his final year with the school. “I won’t give up… I believe this is the best team I’ve been a part of and we can compete with anyone in the league.”
