With four major American sports taking place at the same time, it’s hard to pick one player who was “the best.” However, one player from the NFL was more impressive this week. AJ Brown picked up three long passes to land in one inning. With that, he was very significant in the seventh win of the season for the Philadelphia Eagles.
With that said, the Philadelphia team remains undefeated this season and Arthur Juan Brown Senior’s role in this is big. He scored six touchdowns in eight games and covered 718 yards for his team. That’s almost as much now as in any of his previous seasons this year. He also has better marks than the entire strike of the Tennessee Titans, the team Brown left for Philadelphia last summer. This past weekend turned out to be the absolute highlight of the wide receiver. He grabbed six balls, covered 156 yards for his team and scored three goals in the 35-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the 25-year-old Brown thinks he can do a much better job.
This is not surprising for a player who always asks himself a lot. He played baseball and American football at Starkville High School in Mississippi. With great stats, he helped his soccer team in the championship and was named the best team in the United States in both sports. Brown quickly reached an agreement to play both sports at the University of Mississippi.
At the “Ole Miss”, as the university is also called, he will eventually play only American football. He was picked up by the San Diego Padres during the 2016 MLB Draft and decided to sign a contract there as well. As a result, he was no longer allowed to play baseball in college and his focus was on American football. Only one week a year, he joined Padres for a bootcamp. Meanwhile, at the Ole Miss, he broke several records, became the wide receiver with the most yards in college history, and made a name for himself in the sport. Three years later, he decided to switch to the real thing and add his name to the NFL draft.
Drafted by the Tennessee Titans, Brown wanted to combine the two sports, but that wasn’t an option. The Padres and Titans both wanted the young star to focus on just one sport. For example, Brown chose the sport in which he had the most confidence in its success and went to work in Tennessee. During his three years with the Titans, Brown quickly established himself at the top and was named Team of the Year, but he also suffered a number of injuries. Thus, the Tennessee Titans decided to trade him with the Philadelphia Eagles.
As he has now had so much success this season, he could hardly have played. Before moving to Philadelphia, Brown bred the idea of joining the San Diego Padres after all and turning American football into baseball. He even made a public request on social media to join him in training and give him a chance. Again, the baseball team didn’t like having someone on the team play two sports, so Brown had to choose again. After long considerations, he decided to come back again just to make sure, but he also indicated that he wanted to get into baseball one day.
