Coach Muuss on Brown: "Oliver is a goalkeeper we identified early on in the recruiting process as a potential replacement for Joe Willis, who's now with DC United. Oliver has great hands, is athletic, fearless and competitive. He also is a tremendous leader who carries all the attributes we look for in a DU player."

Mockingbird Valley Soccer Club Coach Jonathan Velotta on Brown: "Oliver Brown physically is a monster. He's got great hands, everything sticks to him. He's terrific out in the air. He makes some saves that you don't see goalkeepers make."
