BlazeSports would like congratulate two of our Georgia Blazers for being named to the 2012 U.S. Paralympics Track and Field High School All American Team – Curran Brown and Bryan Powell.

Curran was recognized for her incredible performance in shot put throwing 5.96 meters. She is not only an All American, but she is the #1 ranked girl’s high school shot putter in the country. Curran also competes in javelin, discus and all the track events in her division. Curran is a senior at Johns Creek High School and plans to go to college to become a pediatrician.

Bryan excelled in javelin throwing 10.79 meters last season. He is top ranked in each of his seven wheelchair track and field events, holding several age group national records in the T33 and F33 division. Bryan is in his junior year at Lassiter High School.

Curran and Bryan are also team mates on the Georgia Blazers Varsity wheelchair basketball team.

Congratulations Curran and Bryan!
