Lindbergh High School


Deven Brown, Junior

Boys’ Track and Field

Coach Jef Rettmann:

Why does this student deserve to be athlete of the week?

Since his freshman year Deven Brown has been one of the top sprinters in the state. He is a year-round track athlete who competes in the Junior Olympics in the summer and runs indoor track in the winter. Few high school athletes are as dedicated and committed to success as Deven. This season he has the fastest 100 and 200 meters times in in the state for the 2A classification, as well as running on the 4X100 relay that is the 2A state leader. Last weekend at the Bill Harris Invitational, Deven ran a new personal record in the 100 at 10.45 seconds. This set a new school record at Lindbergh, and it is the leading time in the state for all classifications.

From Deven:

1. What is your favorite subject/class in school?

Language Arts

2. What other activities/hobbies do you enjoy?

Hanging out. Playing games with friends.

3. Person who has helped you succeed the most?

Two people that have helped my succeed are my mom and dad. They want the best for me.

4. Do you have a pre-game ritual or post-game tradition, and what is it?

I listen to music and don’t talk to anybody and focus on what I need to do for my race.

5. Song you currently can’t get enough of?

I don’t have a specific song, but anything by Meek Mill or Lil Baby has had me hyped up lately.
