Plant coach Robert Weiner has heard the reports of Orlando Olympia sophomore quarterback Colby Brown's allegedly impending transfer to Plant. He doesn't know, though, if or when that will happen and said that Brown has not enrolled at Plant yet. The new semester starts this week for Hillsborough County schools.
"If anyone comes in, they come in," Weiner said. "We're 100 percent thrilled at the guys coming back from a football standpoint."
Larry Blustein of the Miami Herald reported Saturday evening that Brown was transferring to Plant. He threw for 1,634 yards, 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions as the Titans starter, leading his team to the second round of the Class 8A playoffs (the Panthers, of course, won the 8A state title).
Plant has junior quarterbacks Aaron Banks and Kyle Groh returning. Banks battled with James Few for the starting position last summer and saw playing time in several games this season, including the state title game against Miramar. Groh also saw action and threw a touchdown pass in the second round against Orlando Dr. Phillips.
