He just missed a Javelina record for the longest punt by a single yard when booted a kick 87 yards at Tarleton State. Of his 65 punts, 25 landed inside the 20, and 14 travelled over yards.

A second-team, All-LSC performer Brown is entering his third season with the Javelinas. Last season, the senior defensive tackle had 41 tackles including 5.5 tackles for a loss.
