Brown proving his worth early in season

(Continued)

MOORE —

“I thought Justin Brown did great,” Stoops said. “I said once he decided to come here this isn’t like a guy that hasn’t played big time football. He was playing big time football as a true freshman. Been playing it ever since. This is a guy who knows how to compete. He has size and strength to him. Has speed. The guy’s got it all. He’s a really special guy.”

Stoops hearkened back to one of his former Sooners to describe what Brown brings to special teams.

“What makes him such a good punt returner, it reminds of the days going back to J.T. Thatcher,” Stoops said. “He can run through some people. He’s not a guy that you can get hold of his jersey and swing him down. He’s got a lot of strength to him.”

Brown also ended his second game as a Sooner with two catches for 55 yards. He joined Metoyer, Kenny Stills, Sterling Shepard and the rest of the wide receiver core in riddling the Rattlers for 252 yards.

“I know it sounds funny, but we have this thing where we call ourselves Cheetahs,” Metoyer said. “You have to play fast, you have to play explosive. Cheetahs are fast. You can’t hit nothing you can’t catch.”

Brown proved that over and over again Saturday.
