With two state championships already on his resume, Millwood linebacker Alijah Brison has helped the Falcons to an 8-0 record and appear poised to run the table once again.
At 6’1, 220-pounds, Brison is fast, physical middle linebacker who makes smart decisions and flies to the ball.
He spent the offseason attending camps at East Central and Central Oklahoma.
“I learned to be more patient with my reads and that even though I make some mistakes I go 100 percent while making them and that my effort is appealing to coaches,” Brison said. “The things I most improved on had to be my pass coverage and tackling.”
He currently holds offers from ECU and SWOSU and has drawn interest from Langston University, Arkansas Tech, Yale, Cornell and Princeton.Six Star Football recently caught up with Brison and asked him about his senior season.
