Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Mike Brown the Liberty quarterback plans to one day become Mike Brown the football coach.

Here's his scouting report of his favorite quarterback - Mike Brown, of course:

"Hard working, passionate guy about everything he does. Perfectionist. I'm never quite satisfied with anything because I'm always just trying to find a way to get better."

The Flames have won or shared each of the last four Big South Conference championships, but have fallen short of qualifying for the playoffs in each season. Last year, they were Big South tri-champs with Coastal Carolina and Stony Brook, and Coastal Carolina earned the tie-breaker to secure the conference's first-ever automatic bid to the playoffs."
