College career[edit]

Brown was a four-year starter at the University of North Carolina, where he played linebacker and defensive end.[1] He set the defensive lineman squat record of 655 lbs.[2]

Professional career[edit]

He was signed by the South Jersey Lynx as a street free agent in 2007. Brown has also played for the Central Penn Piranha and the BC Lions. In 2009, Brown started playing indoor football, when he joined the Harrisburg Stampede of the American Indoor Football Association (AIFA).

He signed with the Southern Indoor Football League's Trenton Steel on April 26, 2011.[5] Brown spent the next two years on and off with the Soul.
