Life’s dream: Play in the NFL

Info file: The son of former NFL offensive tackle Orlando “Zeus” Brown, the big tackle has improved greatly since he began playing football as an eighth-grader. He moved into the Peachtree Ridge district from Maryland after his sophomore season, when the offers started pouring in from major colleges. He committed to Tennessee in early May.

Coach Mark Fleetwood’s take: “He’s here every morning. There’s been no skipping practice, no skipping summer workouts. He’s a loving kid. His nature is unbelievable. I think the next two to three years, the transformation of him into a football player will continue. He’s 17 years old, just turned 17 in May. His future is ahead of him. He can get off the ball now. He can move. He still wants to do it better than he’s doing it now and that’s what I like. He’s hungry, which is great.”

He used to play basketball but gave that up when he realized his potential in football when he played in some varsity games for Buford as a freshman. He committed to Clemson early to remove the stress of recruiting entering his senior year.

Info file: A difference-maker at defensive end, Sawyer began his North Gwinnett career as a running back but made his mark on defense last season. He had 83 tackles, seven sacks and two interceptions as a junior, including a highlight game in a playoff victory over Grayson. In that win, he caused and recovered a fumble on the game’s opening drive and intercepted a pass to set up North’s final touchdown. A four-star recruit by all three major services, he also is the No. 40 overall prospect on the national ESPN 300 and the No. 4 prospect in Georgia according to ESPN.

Coach Bob Sphire’s take: “He’s athletic, he’s explosive and he’s really strong. It’s not just upper or lower body strength, he’s got a mixture. He’s a lot of fun to coach, too. He’s an up-tempo, fun-loving, high-energy guy. Our team kind of feeds off that. And he’s competitive. He wants the team to be first and he wants the team to win.”
