BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Merritt Island Mustangs quarterback and kicker Brady Denaburg received a full scholarship offer to play football at the United States Air Force Academy on Saturday.
There was not much Brady Denaburg did not do on the football field this year. He was the starting quarterback, placekicker, punter, and team captain.
But, most of all, he was a leader. The Mustangs did not lose to a team from the state of Florida during the regular season. Their only loss was to Cairo, Georgia during week 5. A big part of this record was the play of Denaburg.
Some of the memorable key plays Denaburg made this season occurred in the state semifinal game against Sebring.
With the Mustangs down 10-9 late in the 4th quarter, Denaburg delivered when it mattered most. With two minutes and twenty-five seconds left in the game, the Mustangs were facing a 3rd and 25 from their own 25-yard line.
On an outstanding run, Denaburg dodged multiple Sebring players to pick up 15 yards for a manageable 4th and 10.
The very next play, he eluded two defensive players to connect with his receiver, picking up 11 yards for a 1st down.
The most memorable moment was “The Kick.”
With 48 seconds left in the state semifinal game, Denaburg calmly stepped up and kicked a 43-yard field goal that sent the Mustangs to the state championship for the first time in over 40 years.
Denaburg’s calm demeanor and his incredible play in key moments this season makes him the FNLR/SCD Player of the Year.
