The First Presbyterian Christian Academy Highlanders are proud to announce a new addition to their varsity basketball team.  Michael Brown, a freshman, is the new Highlander on campus at FPCA.   
The decision to transfer Michael to FPCA was one that Mr. and Mrs. Michael Brown Sr. had been considering for a while. Mr. Brown became interested earlier this year he said after talking with some of the students from FPCA.   
“The students are well grounded in their studies and show great leadership abilities,” said Mr. Brown. “Also, the student- to-teacher ratio is the other reason why our decision was an easy one to make. We are truly impressed with the administration and the chemistry that the students have at FPCA. Our decision to send Michael to FPCA was one that we believe will help him in his future endeavors. He plans to become an Electrical Engineer and we believe that the education he will receive at FPCA will give him the ground work that he will need to succeed at the college level.”   
Michael played his first game on Jan. 8, scoring 7 points, dishing 2 assists and grabbing 3 rebounds in the Highlanders’ 50-33 win over Frederica.
FPCA coach Darrell West is excited to have such a great edition to the team.
“He is an outstanding freshman that will be an asset to the Highlanders this season and we look forward to the future with Brown,” West said. “The team is really excited about having Brown as a part of the FPCA family.”   
Brown said that he is excited about reuniting with players that he has played with before such as freshman Hakeem Golden and sophomore Terrence “T.A.” Alston II.   
“These young men are on their way to a wonderful season,” assistant coach John Linderman said.
On Saturday, the Highlanders lost to Georgia Christian School in Valdosta, 69-61.
The Highlanders fought back after being down as much as 20 points.  
These young men are awarsome to watch,” West said. “They do not give up. Their sheer determination and confidence in each others ability is what makes this team remarkable.”
FPCA hosts Twiggs Academy at 4 p.m. tonight.
