Date of Birth
Marshall University (1991-1992)
Considered the single-most dangerous scoring threat in all of the Football Championship Subdivision during his two seasons in Huntington, few can match the career of Marshall's record-breaking wide receiver Troy Brown. A dual threat on the playing field, Brown's elusive nature as a receiver and kick returner led the Thundering Herd to back-to-back trips to the Division I- AA (now FCS) National Championship game, garnering the NCAA title in 1992. He totaled 139 receptions for 2,746 yards and 24 touchdowns in his career en route to earning first-team All-America honors his senior year. Additionally, he boasted 1,825 return yards and four touchdowns on special teams. Brown went on to play 14 years in the NFL with the New England Patriots, where he became the franchise's all-time leading receiver and won three Super Bowls with the team. A 2001 Pro Bowl selection, he served as the Pats' team captain for five seasons.
