AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -  The firsts keep coming for the Georgia Southwestern this season.

Hurricanes forward Phillip Brown has been named a first team all-region player.

Phillip Brown is the first GSW athlete in any sport to earn a first team all region honor.

Brown is averaging 15 points and 11 rebounds a game this season for the Hurricanes and was named the player of the year in the Peach Belt.

The transfer from the Air Force Academy shares the credit for the individual honors with his teammates.

Phillip Brown said. "It is really a great year for all of us. My teammates just told me they believed in me. They just got me the ball. Put me in positions where I could get this award and everything."
