Salute to Seniors: Andre Brown

Whitehaven had a sensational season.

They finished second in the state behind Brentwood High School. And Andre Brown was one of the big leaders on that team.

Brown will head to UT-Martin to continue his track and field career this fall. But in his final months as a Tiger, he reflected with us on some of the high points from his high school career.

Check out Monday's installment of Salute to Seniors -- Andre Brown.
