MEMPHIS EAST HEAD COACH MARCUS WIMBERLY  "Brian has helped elevate this program back to the status it had years ago. He let people know quality football is played at East High School.

"Brian is a hard worker, and a leader on and off the field. He has great speed and agility, but his vision is what stands out. That's what makes Brian unique.

"I remember the first time he touched the ball as a sophomore. He zig-zagged his way for a touchdown. The coaches knew then that's what we had been missing."
