Brown possessed exceptional pace, he was a Stawell Gift finalist, and was used on the wing when he started out at Carlton during the 1941 VFL season. In his second season Brown began playing as a key defender to fill the gap left by players who were serving in the war and was full-back in Carlton's 1945 premiership side, where he stood South Melbourne's star forward Laurie Nash.
Brown was a half back flanker in Carlton's next premiership, playing most of the Grand Final on Essendon's leading player Dick Reynolds. A twisted ankle sustained in the 1948 VFL season prompted Brown to announce his retirement.
