NLI: Brady Long Chooses Culver-Stockton

Brown County's Brady Long commits to Culver-Stockton for Football

Brady Long: "A year ago I never would have thought I'd be playing football. I thought I was going to be playing baseball there a year ago, but I talked to both coaches and decided I wanted to play football. I just like the feeling better and just everything that happened here, especially me missing my last game ever in high school. It definitely made me want to play football another four years.

I'm not playing summer baseball this year, so that's going to give me more time to get in the weight room and stuff and put on some weight and get a healthy diet and everything. I just need to put on some weight to match the speed to become a better player. I need to work on my agility and everything and get the best as I can.

Coach Tom Little: "When you look at Brady, he's a playmaker. He's got big-play potential and made many big plays throughout our season. We think that's what they are going to get. A guy that's going to be very aggressive, going after the football, flying up and making big hits. Bringing that kind of football we want from Brown County to Culver-Stockton's campus.

Brady Long: "It was more which has the best criminal justice program. I looked in to that at almost every college in the nation. It was ridiculous, it took forever. And I found this place, went and talked to the teachers over there, when I found out the teacher was a Texas state ranger I was pretty impressed. It definitely helped making my decision.
