Brown was an excellent receiver for Southern Miss, but at the 2011 Beef 'O' Brady Bowl he became known for an entirely unwanted reason. As he dove to haul in a nine-yard pass that gave him the school record for reception yards, his cleat caught in the ground while his momentum propelled him forward and down. The result was a mangled leg that ended not only his season, but also his college career as Brown would declare for the draft after the game. His pro career did not pan out, unfortunately; he went undrafted, then was signed and released by the Eagles in a span of less than two weeks that summer.
