MOBILE, Ala. - “My mom will probably come to every practice. I have 60-something family members that I know of that’s coming,” said former Troy QB Brandon Silvers.
The Silvers family will be filling the stands at Ladd this weekend, and for good reason.
The Gulf Shores native is set to play in the Senior Bowl this Saturday. A big stage for the former Troy signal caller.
“I think it’s huge for Brandon, he’s well deserving,” said Troy head coach Neal Brown. “He’s one of the top quarterbacks in the country and I look forward to watching him this week. I got to watch him today and he’s a special talent. He’s going to play well in the practice and the game.”
“Coming back here, it’s going to be really fun to get back to practice in the area I’m familiar with and the town I’m familiar with too," said Silvers.
From Gulf Shores, to Troy and now in th Senior Bowl, the message is simple-- if you have the talent, the scouts will find you.
“They’re going to find you if you can play," said Silvers. "That’s what I tell guys if they ask me - play at the high school where you grew up, don’t worry about transferring and trying to play at a bigger school."
