Walter Brown remains a Buc

By Wes Holtsclaw

   Elizabethton football standout Walter Brown signed with ETSU after his senior season, but the removal of the Buccaneer football program left his collegiate football career with many question marks.
   The future freshman assisted at the Witten Football Camp on Saturday with former Cyclone teammates and revealed his future plans to members of the media, announcing that he would remain a Bucaneer.
   However, Brown will play for the Bucs of Charleston Southern in Charleston, South Carolina.
   The STAR Offensive Player-Of-The-Year had over 1,800 yards rushing with 26 touchdowns this past season in the orange and black.
   Brown visited Chattanooga and planned visiting local schools Tusculum and Carson-Newman if his plans fell through.
   Charleston Southern is a member of the small four-team Big South Conference in 1-AA football, which features Gardner-Webb, VMI and Liberty.
   The Bucs were coached by David Down through its first twelve years of existence; however, the program has seen its shares of ups and downs with a 34-94 record during his tenure.
   Southern will be coached by Jay Mills this coming season, who is coming off a successful tenure as the offensive coordinator of Harvard University. He previously served as head coach at the University of Minnesota at Morris and as a graduate assistant under Lou Holtz at Notre Dame.
