TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- November 4th will mark one year since former Florida High stand out athlete Cam Brown passed away.

The football, wrestling and track and field star captivated the Big Bend and beyond with his fight against cancer, a fight he smiled through even after a leg amputation.

While Cam may not be here in the flesh his memory certainly lives on one year later.

"SuperCam" was his fitting nickname because he pushed through his fight with super strength and it's that strength that's kept those that knew "SuperCam" best, strong over the past year.

Compassionate and always focused on the next play is how Florida High remembers him.

"He's such an easy person to show kids what is looks like. What a good young man that works really hard and does all the right things looks like," said Head wrestling coach, Clay Allen.

"Hopefully we can continue that and keep it going. It's something we all should share in, and we should all recognize how to live like that. It's an incredible way to live," said Head Football coach, Jarrod Hickman. 

SuperCam's memory now lives on through those around him.

"He didn't want to be forgotten. He didn't want people to not remember who he was and what he stood for. It's just the time that we all were able to have with him and how lucky we are to have been able to spend with such an incredible young man," said Allen.
