Diamond Talk: Josh Brown, OT, College of Idaho | A MASSIVE man and dual sport athlete

Josh Brown is impressive on film and the kid is a pretty athletic kid. He definitely should get a shot at an All-Star event to show he can compete with better talent.

Josh Brown maybe from a very small school in Idaho, but there is nothing small about this kid. The College of Idaho senior offensive tackle is a mammoth of the man. He stands at 6070 and weighs 305 pounds. He is a dual sport athlete and a very good one at that.

It all started in Colfax, Washington where Brown played high school football for Colfax High, where he was a two-time All-Northeast League selection on both sides of the ball, and was a captain for his final two years.

Brown would end up landing at Division 2 Western Oregon, where he redshirted in football but competed in outdoor track. He is a stud when it comes to track and field. He qualified this year in the NAIA Indoor National Championship in the 35 pound weight throw, along with the NAIA Outdoor National Championships in the hammer throw, discus and shot put and won the Cascade Conference Title in both the shot put and the discus throw. Brown set school records in two events with 54.08 meters in the hammer throw and 15.35 in the shot put.

When it comes to football the kid has all the intangibles. He is big, he can move, and he is a hell of a mauler. He earned All-Frontier Conference honors after starting all 11 games at left tackle last year.  He helped his team rank second in rushing and led the college to their highest scoring total for a season in program history.

He has started every game in his college career, the first two years at right tackle and last year at left tackle. NFL teams will see him as a swing tackle and almost every team needs one.  He has the size, ability and intelligence to mold him into a future starter in the NFL.  Remember his name because no one is talking about him right now, and they should be!
