Meet the Founder and CEO Jeremiah Brown of LEAD Athletics, LLC

Jeremiah Brown is the founder and CEO of LEAD Athletics, LLC (Leaders Embracing Athletic Dreams), Dean of Students in both middle and high school, motivational speaker, and retired NFL player. He retired early from the NFL due to injury and since has been committed to serving the community.

LEAD Athletics is a sports performance training company with a mission to train student-athletes to be physically fit for competition. We educate, equip, and encourage student-athletes to envision sports as much more than recreation, but as a passport and an avenue to enhancing one's professional and academic life. LEAD will provide student-athletes with the necessary tools to prosper not only in their athletic commitments and careers but will prepare them for fulfilling lives as they transition out of the sports world.

Brown has had a measurable impact on the youth, serving as a mentor for student-athletes, helping them to set goals not only in sports but in everyday life, raising awareness on mental health, and teaching financial literacy including how to secure scholarships. He continues to take LEAD to the next level, developing Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) curriculums and offering it to school systems and sports teams. The purpose of the PBIS curriculum is to develop student-athletes into holistic individuals. Too often, our youth only view themselves as just an athlete, leaving room for social and emotional gaps in one's life. With this curriculum, LEAD conducts social, emotional, and interpersonal skill workshops for student-athletes all over the tri-state area. We at LEAD Athletics are striving to give kids a chance to dream and see themselves in a way they couldn't even imagine, stimulating critical thinking and interpersonal skill development.
