Of course there’s a little more that goes into the age old adage pertaining to speed, however; no two words hold more weight than that of the aforementioned two especially when chasing down a running back.
Speaking of running backs, L.C. Bird starting running back Ramon Brown (2022 RB 6-0 180) picked up his first offer from Virginia Tech at the end of January breaking the seal on what is bound to be a prosperous recruitment. Less than three months later, Brown has now picked up his second collegiate offer which has been granted from Coach Michael Locksley and the University of Maryland.
“It feels great to receive another offer. But I still know that I have to stay humble, don’t let the two offers get into my head, and never think that I am better than anyone for it,” explained Brown.
The L.C. Bird prospect was one of only a very few freshmen to make a size impact for the Coach Troy Taylor and the Skyhawks last season. In a backup role to Tre Mason, Brown was able to rush for 631 yards on 72 carries and five touchdowns. His speed created balance in the backfield last year for Coach Taylor, but his role is expected to increase this season with the unexpected transfer of Mason to Life Christian Academy.

Preparing for more responsibility has opened up a sense of awareness that has allowed Brown to seek out opportunities to elevate his stock. This sense of awareness led him to John Champe High School in Washington D.C. this past weekend in which he attended the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp. This was an event in which multiple Hampton Roads and Central Region prospects were able to make their mark including: Tony Grimes (Princess Anne), LaMareon James (Indian River), Thailand Baldwin (Life Christian), and Kevin Gilliam (Highland Springs).
“The camp was great. I had a lot of fun out there laughing, joking, and most of all competing,” Brown stated.
Expect the next couple of weeks to be quiet for the L.C. Bird product as his next major appearance with be at the Nike Opening. The Opening has two regions within close proximity this year those being Charlotte (Rocky River High School) on April 28 and Washington D.C. (St. James Facility) on May 5.
