Standing in the Gap

Kamien Brooks #99

Kamian Brooks #99 of the Walton Raiders stood in the Defensive GAP and epitomized the eternal football slogan:

Throughout the 2016 season, #99 stood toe-to-toe against Offensive Tackles and Guards that many times overwhelmingly outweighed him and beat them with his SPEED, STRENGTH, and WILL.  Kamien Brooks #99 WaltonIn a season full of 5 star offensive recruits, Kamian Brooks showed them that he was a force to be reckoned with.  The Walton defense began the season with a vast majority of young inexperienced players, who continually improved around his Senior leadership and ability.  In football circles, it is common to hear, "The best offense is a good defense" and is an adage that has been applied to many fields of endeavor, including games and military combat. It is also known as one of the Strategic Principles of War.  Kamian Brooks was just that, a "Warrior".

"As a Defensive player, my job was to chase down the QB, stop the Running Back, and to thwart the Wide Receivers - on EVERY play.  To make Tight Ends wish they did not have to block me, to beat Defensive Tackles, and to wreak havoc on the Offense"
        - Ray Lewis

Kamian Brooks played every down, every snap, and every series like it was his last and it was as a Raider, but he will surely be seen soon on a Saturday Football field near you.
