Gatorade announced today that Jalen Brown has been named the Gatorade Arizona Football Player of the Year. The award honors Jalen’s achievements on the field as well as in the classroom and in the community. We are so proud of his accomplishments.

Please Read the Official Press Release below:

CHICAGO (November 29, 2012) — In its 28th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade
Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Jalen Brown of Mountain Pointe
High School as its 2012-13 Gatorade Arizona Football Player of the Year. Brown is the first Gatorade Arizona Football
Player of the Year to be chosen from Mountain Pointe High School.
The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic
achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Brown as Arizona’s best high
school football player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Football Player of the Year award
announced in December, Brown joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports, including
Mark Sanchez (2004-05, Mission Viejo HS, Calif.), Wes Welker (1999-00, Heritage Hall HS, Okla.), Terrell Suggs (1999-
00, Hamilton HS, Ariz.), Anquan Boldin (1998-99, Pahokee HS, Fla.) and Jerome Bettis (1989-90, Mackenzie HS,
The 6-foot-2, 178-pound junior wide receiver and safety caught 68 passes for 1,235 yards and 18 touchdowns this past
season, leading the Pride (12-2) to the Division I state championship game. On defense, Brown recorded 25 tackles, 12
pass break-ups and five interceptions—returning one for a touchdown—in addition to forcing and recovering a
fumble. A two-time All-State Honorable Mention selection, he is rated as the nation’s No. 46 recruit in the Class of 2014
Brown has maintained a 3.42 GPA in the classroom. He has volunteered locally as part of a fundraising campaign to
benefit cancer research, as a peer tutor and as a youth football coach and referee.
“Jalen Brown is a stud,” said Tom Joseph, head coach of Corona del Sol High. “He is tough to cover and a great young
man. He is the best receiver we saw this year.” Brown will begin his senior year of high school next fall.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the
50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys
and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each
sport. The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with
USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of
accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.
Brown joins recent Gatorade Arizona Football Players of the Year Davonte Neal (2011-12, 2010-11, Chaparral High
School), Brett Hundley (2009-10, Chandler), Craig Roh (2008-09, Chaparral High School) and Tim Ruben (2007-08,
Saguaro) among the state’s list of former award winners.

The Mountain Pointe Football Program put in a lot of hours and racked up many miles this summer. Players lifted weights four days a week and practiced twice a week for the majority of their vacation. We are proud of their work and accomplishments and the players understand that this is only the beginning…

Kicking off the summer activities were the U of A and ASU passing league tournaments, respectively. Both the varsity and JV teams participated in these events. At U of A, the varsity team played into the semi-final game against Basha only to fall short in the end (they would later redeem themselves) and the JV team played well into the afternoon. At ASU our lineman competed in the Big Man challenge with some of the most exciting and anticipated one-on-one match-ups in the competition.

By the middle of June we were ready to find some cooler whether. The varsity skill players spent a weekend in Flagstaff at the NAU High Mountain Challenge. Our 7 on 7 team compiled impressive wins over Chaparral, Marcos de Niza and Saguaro. By the end of a very long day, the Pride were undefeated heading into the championship game against Basha. The championship game was an incredibly hard fought battle and both teams traded scores. Finally, with 24 seconds left Jalen Brown caught the go-ahead score to put the pride on top; but he wasn’t done. Jalen intercepted Basha’s final Hail Mary in the endzone to cement the victory. The Pride took home the Championship Axe awarded by coach Jerome Souers and his staff.

While the skill players headed up north, the big men took a little trip of their own. In June, several Pride lineman headed out to sunny California and the University of San Diego lineman camp. The lineman had the opportunity to get coached up by Div. I football coaches and compete against many talented Southern California players. They also made a little excursion to the beach!

In July, the entire varsity football team took a bus up to Round Valley High School in Springerville/Eagar, AZ for football camp. The players woke up at 5am every morning to run the hill before breakfast. The team practiced in the Dome two times a day. I was great to be out of the heat and really focus on football for a few days. 


Former Pride football standout, J.R. Plote, played in his first collegiate spring football game at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium on the campus of South Dakota State University. J.R. is majoring in electrical engineering and will play defensive end for the Jacks in the fall. Check out some of the links below for more on the Jackrabbit’s 2012 Spring Game.
