  31. Interview with Terrell Brown

    Terrell Brown, a junior football player at the University of Mississippi. Weighing 376 pounds and measuring 6’11”, Terrell is clearly someone to be feared on the field. Majoring in graphic design, Brown’s career goal is to design magazines for ESPN; however, his main goal is to be drafted into the NFL. In our interview we asked Terrel a few question about football, and how he manages it with his school work. Terrel assured us that it’s not easy to juggle the two, but it is very important to stay focused in order to be successful.
