In her first year as Head Coach, Coach Brown is excited with all the potential the Vixen have shown.
Growing up, she was an all-around athlete from a young age who always had a love for football. Coach Brown played for the Vixen for 5 years primarily at defensive end but also as a tight end and on the offensive line as a tackle. With a strong background in teaching and training, Coach Brown uses those skills to coach as well. Previously, she has coached soccer and youth boys football along with being involved in all Vixen operations for the last four seasons.
The Vixen have a long and storied history that she is interested in honoring while continuing to grow the team, acknowledging the bright future ahead. With the right coaches, training and motivation, Coach Brown believes there is nothing the Vixen cannot accomplish together. Her focus is always on team first.
“We play for the logo on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back” Coach Brown said.
