Brown brings buzz to Tribe


It's a proven formula, and one that already has the Indians buying in.

"Having that kind of coaching wanting to come into our system, and to try to get us to (that level of success), knowing that we have potential to go there, that sounds good for us," linebacker Bryant White said. "He's seen things we probably haven't, and we've seen things that he hasn't. If we come together and come to a comprimise, then that will be all well and good for us in the long run."

Brown faced Kokomo and Huntington North during his tenure at Wayne, but he knows he'll face a learning curve against the other North Central Conference opponents. He also knows that goes both ways, with those schools hustling to learn just as much about him and his preferred coaching style.

Many of the specifics are being kept under wraps for now. But it's clear Brown intends to bring an intimidating and hard-hitting approach to Anderson.

Under his tutelage, the Indians will take the fight to the opposition and make no apologies.

"If some people don't like a physical brand of football, so be it," Brown said. "I can live with that. Everything within the rules, not dirty, not cheap, nothing like that. But a team that's not going to quit, that's going to play hard for four quarters and play through the whistle and doesn't stop playing until the official blows the whistle. That's the kind of team we'll have."
