QUOTING MICHAEL BROWN

“I was fortunate to watch Michael grow both physically and mentally during his time at Sidwell Friends. His body made an unbelievable transformation during his time at the school. By senior year, he had matured into a brilliant leader. Michael was an important player not just because of his size and ability to space the floor, but his attention to detail and leadership intangibles. I look forward to watching him continue to develop at the next level,” said Adam Ayalew of Prep Hoops.

WHY I WEAR MY NUMBER

I chose to wear No. 5 at Florida State because I am the fifth born of five brothers and sisters.

Michael Brown is the 16th Seminole to wear the No. 5.  Adrian Crawford, the Seminoles’ current radio analyst, wore No. 5 during his career as a Seminole.  Crawford played in 75 games during three seasons and is ranked 13th in school history for career 3-point field goals made (135).

WHAT'S IN A NAME

My full name is Michael John Daniel Brown.  Michael is my father’s first name, John is my grandfather’s first name (my mother’s dad) and Daniel is my other grandfather’s first name (my father’s dad).

MY HOMETOWN

My hometown of St. Washington, Md. is very creative, unique, diverse, transient and entertaining.  My hometown borders Washington, D.C.
