Lavon Brown is a Class of 2023 Wide Receiver from Desert Pines High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is 6’1” and 185lbs, he has strong hands and is a clean route runner. He flashes breakaway speed and makes opposing CB1s look silly. He’s very athletic and has great ball tracking technique. He has also run a 4.6 40-yard dash with a mask on.

How long have you been playing football?

Lavon: Since I was 5, I played both tackle and flag to stay in shape.

How would you describe your role on the team? 

L: Even though there are a lot of seniors, I’m a leader for the receiving corps.  My coaches expect that of us, being leaders at all times.

How would your teammates describe you?

L: I’m a born leader. They like being around me, my energy always good, and I always pick my teammates up.

What would you say is your biggest strength?

L: On the field, I have strong hands and good route running, I’m fast but my speed still needs a little work. Off the field, I’m a leader, making sure the team all gets to class and gets to workouts.

What do you need to improve on the most to make sure you’re successful at the next level?

L: I need to get a little faster, and I sometimes have bad habits, but when those are out of the way I am the best player I can be.

Who would you compare yourself to, in college or the NFL?

L: I would say the guy I follow myself most closely by is Justin Jefferson, my game is right behind him in my opinion. My coaches move me around like they would Jefferson in the NFL.

What is your goal for this season with Desert Pines? 

L: My personal goal: I just want to win a championship and do good for the team. I want to put my teammates name in the news, and get offers for all of us.

What are you going to bring to the college team that recruits you?

L: Everything they need I can bring, I’m a big leader and a big scorer. I lead on and off the field, and whatever they need and wherever they need me, I’m good and I will put my 100% out there.
