Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting comments:
July 2011: Very hard worker. Quick leg. Accurate. Has elevation on field goals off the ground. Gets a Good pop on the ball. Tendency to use his body and unusual plant position but spent time working that out and learning to create more leverage for speed and ball compression with Coach Assad in the summer of 2011.

Player to watch. Showing improvements daily. Coach says he is right where he needs to be for the season.

NOV. 26, 2011 UPDATE:
David Brown made 35 straight PAT kicks at one point. He made 53-of-56 PAT attempts on the season. The 53 makes tied for second most in school history while the 56 attempts are also second.

NOV. 15TH, 2011
Brown had a career-high two field goals made, including the game winner as the Penguins upset top-ranked North Dakota State. Brown made a 33-yard field goal in the first quarter and drilled a 30-yard kick in the third quarter which put YSU on top 27-24. That second field goal proved to be the difference in the game. Brown also made all three of his extra-point tries in the Fargodome.
