Of course, the change was not at all difficult for him. Although college life was quite difficult for him, Brown received the best support from his coach Zach Azzanni and his wife. They absorbed him into the family and he became part of them.
During those moments, he played 14 games. He played well and received recognition from the Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year for being the best player. He also won the All-Conference award for being the best punt returner.
When he left college, Brown was sure that he was headed for greatness. During the early days of his career, Brown received impressive rankings the same way he receives them today. He has participated in a number of games, including the National Football League and the Central Michigan’s Pro Day.
