Bryant lands Brown

Toby Brown said the decision wasn’t a difficult one. At some point during his visit to Bryant University last weekend he knew that’s where the next chapter of his football career would unfold.

Brown, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end who attends Nashua North, signed a National Letter of Intent with Bryant on Wednesday. Bryant is an FBS program located in Smithfield, R.I. 

Brown also had offers from Holy Cross, Merrimack and Sacred Heart. 

“It definitely was not a tough decision,” he said. “When you’re at the place you get a feeling. My visit was very one-on-one with the coaches and players, so I got a good feel for who I’d be around every single day. Really loved the environment that I would be putting myself into. 

“I had a very good visit with Merrimack the week before. I really liked everything there as well, but once I got on (Bryant’s) campus and stuff I just knew. It’s not quite a full (scholarship) but I’m paying barely anything out of pocket.”

Brown said the fact that Bryant has a strong business/finance program was also a strong factor in his decision.

Brown played defensive end on the 2020 North team that beat Goffstown in the Division I championship game. He also played offensive tackle last season, but said Bryant sees him on the defensive side of the ball.

A knee injury cut short his senior season. North entered the playoffs undefeated, but lost to Bedford in the quarterfinals. Brown said as of now he plans to play in the CHaD East/West All-Star Game.
