University of Arkansas Monticello quarterback Demilon Brown was named the Great American Conference Freshman of the Year while seven other Weevils earned All-GAC selections following a vote of the Great American Conference’s head football coaches.

DeAndre Washington, Jaden Salley, Brandon Young, Gabe Brace and Christian Jefferson were all named to the second team while Devontae Dean and Justin Legier garnered honorable mention selections, the league office announced on Wednesday.

Taking over the starting quarterback role in week five, Brown made an instant impact on the Weevil offense. He combined for 1,860 yards of offense, passing for 1,057 and rushing for 803. He had a combined 14 touchdowns and registered a quarterback efficiency rating of 149.6, and many of his numbers were highlighted by some big plays throughout the season including both of UAM’s longest plays from the scrimmage in 2019; an 88-yard touchdown pass, and a 74-yard rushing touchdown. He earned a GAC Player of the Week accolade and a Division II Notable Performer honor.
