New Jersey 18-year-old Quarterback Scores 8 Touchdowns The Day After His Mother’s Death


Alexander Brown not only scored one, but two touchdowns, in one night.

“I still can’t believe it,”The high school quarterback said. “I don’t think many people in their high school careers can barely get up to four in a game, and to get up to eight, breaking records and stuff, I can’t even grasp it.”

Alex is the quarterback of a high school football team in Red Bank, New Jersey. 

He believes he played so well that night because his mother, who died the day before, was with him in spirit. 

“I definitely felt her on the field with me,”He stated. “As soon as I stepped on that field, I could feel a presence.

“And right after I threw that first touchdown pass, I looked into the sky, and I just said, ‘Thank you, mom,’ because I knew that she was going to be with me the whole night.” 

Michelle Brown passed away from breast cancer, and Alex spent nearly 15 years of his childhood watching his mom in pain but still staying strong for her kids. 

“She was made to bring hope to people, and to give them strength.” he said.

Alex believes sharing her story of perseverance is another victory 

“I don’t want people to feel sad.” he stated. “I want people take this in and understand that fighting for the people you love and the beliefs you hold dear is something you must do. That’s what I believe she would want.

Maybe that’s what keeps Alex scoring touchdown after touchdown.
