Emporia State football coach Garin Higgins said “Brexten was a great teammate who cared so much about this football program. It showed in his competitive spirit, his work ethic, and his willingness to be there for his teammates. He will always be a part of our Hornet football family.”
During his senior season, Green posted 1,720 receiving yards, and 409 rushing yards, and scored 27 total touchdowns on his way to a state championship.
