ELKHART — A pair of Concord High School football linemen are headed to college this fall.

Michael McQueen and Curtis Brown-Watson will compete for the Trine Thunder in 2014.

"Trine is getting two players who were very dominant players for us and were key contributors to the success we have had the last several years,'' head coach Tim Dawson said. 

McQueen was a two-year, two-way starter for the Minutemen, who were 10-3 last fall after wrapping up a fourth straight Northern Lakes Conference championship. Concord lost to Westfield 35-3 in the Class 5A north semistate.

McQueen was selected all-state by the Associated Press and Indiana Football Coaches Association and he'll compete in this summer's Grange Insurance All-Star Game in Indianapolis. On defense, McQueen finished 2013 with 23 tackles, 12 assists, 9 tackles for loss and 4 quarterbacks sacks.

"Mike is very explosive and quick," Dawson said. "We played him at defensive tackle and end to create mismatches because of his speed."

Brown-Watson was a two-year starter and three-time letterwinner on the defensive line for Concord. In his senior year, he registered 35 tackles, 13 assists, 5 tackles for loss and 4 sacks.

"Strongest kid on our team," Dawson said. "Curtis holds our bench squat and clean records. He was double-teammed a lot because he was so strong. He was hard to block one-on-one."

Trine finished its season 4-6 with a 1-5 record in Michigan Intercollege Athletic Conference play under head coach Matt Land.
