Brown named to TSWA All-State first-team


PEARLAND DAWSON — Dawson placekicker Carter Brown continues to receive post-season honors as he was recently named as a first-team All-State selection by the Texas Sports Writers Association. These are the writers that actually cover the high school games across the state of Texas. The TSWA teams are considered the "official" All-State teams by Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine -- the publication that is considered the bible for Texas football.

Brown hit 48-of-51 extra points while nailing 14-of-15 field goals including six field goals that traveled over 40 yards. He set a new Dawson school record with a 49-yarder as a sophomore.

Brown was also named as a placekicker to the first-team Associated Press All-State team and he was also honored by MaxPreps as a first-team selection. He was also a first-team All-District 23-6A pick.

"Carter has become a weapon for the FAMILY," Dawson head coach Mike Allison said. "When you are talking about offensive help, his field goal range has allowed us to keep our playbook open once we get to the 35.

"We are confident that he can make a long field goal, so we don’t have to narrow the offensive plays down to either be conservative or to take a shot."

Brown has also been named the No. 1 kicker of the Class of 2022 by the Chris Sailer Kicking School. Sailer is an American football trainer of kicking specialists. He works with high school placekickers and punters and evaluates them for college football programs. Sailer was named an All-American as both a kicker and a punter while playing college football for the UCLA Bruins.
