The Louisiana State University signee had high expectations coming into this season, after leading Sulphur to a semifinals appearance last spring, and he more than delivered in Week 1.  Brown got the opening day nod against North Vermilion and turned in a brilliant performance, as he tossed a complete game shutout, giving up only 3 hits with 0 walks and 16 strikeouts.  He also came in to close the game in the Tors 5-2 win over Calvary Baptist on Saturday by going 2 innings and giving up 0 hits and 0 runs, while recording 5 strikeouts and 0 walks.  What's even more impressive is that he swung the bat extremely well on the week, as he finished going 8-17 (.471 AVG) with 3 HR, 5 RBI, and 2 SB.
