Note: Due to confusion between Team USA and the US Army All-American Bowl teams, this post has been corrected to include just Boeing Brown. Masuk’s Casey Cochran had been erroneously added. He will be attending the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

A few days ago we reported Bassick lineman Brandon Williams‘ invitation to the U-19 Team USA football tryouts in Atlanta.

He wasn’t the only regional player to earn a trip. Brookfield quarterback Boeing Brown has also received invitations to tryout for the national team.

The 6-foot-3, 197-pound Brown, who is perhaps the second-best returning quarterback in the SWC after Cochran, is one of three sophomore/junior quarterbacks to earn an invitation to the tryouts held in Atlanta on Memorial Day weekend.

He threw for 1,511 yards, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions for the Bobcats, who went 9-3 and reached the Class M semifinals last year.
