Germany’s Frankfurt Universe sign Kweishi Brown from Arizona State

The Frankfurst Universe are bolstering the best defensive secondary in the German Football League with the signing of cornerback Kweishi Brown from Arizona State.

The 6’1″, 185 lb 25 year old native of El Cajon, California spent the 2017 season with the Dresden Monarchs where in only four games he recorded three interceptions,(98 return yards), one for a touchdown, 11 tackles, one sack , six pass breakups and nine passes defended. At Arizona State, Brown as a two-year letterwinner who appeared in 26 games with 21 starts, notched 87 tackles, including 73 solo and three for loss, and added 21 pass deflections, five interceptions and a forced fumble. In 2015, he was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic Second Team and he was a three-time Scholar Baller®, which honors student-athletes who earn a 3.0 GPA or above in a given semester.

He first attended Grossmont College in El Cajon, where in his second season he came into his own being named a junior college All-American and collecting four interceptions, 62 tackles and 16 pass breakups. That is when Arizona State came calling.

The Frankfurt Universe talked to Brown about playing in Germany and college football.

Universe: How did you end up signing with Frankfurt? Can you give us an impression of what made you come back to the GFL?

Brown: Unfortunately I was only able to play four games in Dresden due to injuries. I liked it very much in the GFL. I found two great players and good friends there, Sebastien Sagne and Joe Bergeron. After their move to Frankfurt, everything went very fast, I really wanted to finish what I started in Dresden.

Universe: You had a great college career and try outs with the San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals, tell us what you’ve experienced there.

Brown: It’s now been a good 20 years that I have played football, through youth, high school and junior college to the university and finally the GFL. Things did not always go smoothly and a times it was a very rocky road. But I am glad to have left it. I stopped playing this great sport once for two years. But I could not let that happen and after that I fully committed myself. Back on the field I was named to the All-Star Team, got scholarships and made it to the NFL Team Try Outs and that motivated me. I will give 110% on the field and support my brothers on the field.

Universe: What do you know about the “Men in Purple”?

Brown: I am glad that Sebastien [Sagne] introduced me to Coach K, we had a good rapport with each other and I am really looking forward to the 2018 season in Frankfurt. Guys, get the popcorn out, we’ll give you some real fun and exictement on the field. My aim is very clear, I want to complete the last game of the season with the boys on the field, we are here to get titles.
