Some of Brown’s qualifications include:
Class 3-A: Tamauzia Brown, Sr., Wide Receiver, Newton. After a slow start, Newton wide receiver Tamauzia Brown helped lead the Eagles to victory over the Silsbee Tigers Friday night. Brown had 262 all-purpose yards with three touchdowns, one of which came on an 81-yard interception return.
