Few teams in college football have ever had a running back tandem with the ability and production that Auburn received from Brown and Carnell Williams. Brown, blessed with the size of a fullback and the speed of a sprinter, is an excellent receiver in addition to his skills as a power runner. Brown, a Communications major, spent last spring interning at the Auburn Network, where he edited and produced highlight films. Based on his stellar performances as a Tiger the last four years, his own highlight tape might be longer than “Gone With the Wind.”

Brown gained 1,931 yards on 206 carries (9.4 avg.) and scored 25 touchdowns and caught 15 passes for 343 yards (22.9 avg.) and three scores as a senior at Cartersville High School. He also competed as a free safety and intercepted three passes, earning Georgia Class 2A Player of the Year. He scored three touchdowns and rushed for 180 yards on 20 carries in a 27-21 win in the state championship game that year. The three-year starter rushed for 936 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior.
