“My actions and those of my players speak much louder than words,” Brown said in a statement. “I hope my players’ actions will show a strong commitment to discipline, making good decisions and living a life pleasing to God.”

New GCA Athletic Director Tommy Yancey expressed optimism for the new soccer coach.

“We are thrilled and excited to have such an impressive young coach with ties to the area,” Yancey said. “I know the players and parents will be excited to meet him and will appreciate his dedication and knowledge of his craft. He will be a great Christian role model with a high level of character and discipline.”
