Mike Brown Ends Up at Colorado Christian

According to a post from a family member on a message board, former Weber State guard Mike Brown will be playing basketball at Colorado Christian after transferring from the Wildcats.

I just wanted to post an update for those of you who have wondered where Michael would end up playing. He was fortunate enough to have had quite a few options, but has finally settled on Colorado Christian.

It was a difficult decision for Michael to leave Weber State, because he loved his teammates, and really enjoyed his time there, but he realized that he needed to be at a school where he could pursue an education that was more in line with his future goals--working in some form of ministry. I know he is very thankful for the experiences he had, the friendships he made, and the opportunity to be a Wildcat. I also want to thank all of you for being such loyal and supportive fans of the team. Being part of a D1 basketball team was Michael's dream for a very long time, and it's a memory that he will always cherish, in part because the fans made it such an incredible experience. This transfer just moves him closer to another dream that has become his lifelong plan--being able to help people.

I also offer my thanks to those who have been so supportive to Michael at school, in basketball, and on these boards. I'll be there supporting Weber State as much as I can next season (at least as long as they don't schedule any games against CCU)!
Brown was a freshmen last year, but did not see a lot of game action. Still, a lot of people were excited about his potential. From all accounts he is a great kid, and we wish him luck at his next stop (and beyond).

And since Colorado Christian is in Lakewood, CO (where I live and work), maybe I'll even have to go catch one of his games!

  1. Don't know the lad but as a Christian working in a vocational ministry myself, I believe God will bless his obedience with a great situation at CCU.

  2. Mike Brown is a solid dude. Great work ethic, big heart. CCU just gained a valuable asset, on and off the court.

  3. I have never responded to one of these posts before, but you are correct in stating that Mike is a solid dude and CCU has gained a valuable asset on many levels. I would like to know who the person is that made the original post and lives in Lakewood. I am Mike's uncle and live in Loveland and will be attending several of Mike's games and would be interested in meeting up at one his games.
