Brown, a 6-3, 305-pound senior from Kissimmee graded out with the highest percentage of any Wildcats performer along the line following B-CU’s 38-14 win over North Carolina Central.

He anchored an offensive line that paved the way for a season-high 594 yards of total offense, including 436 rushing yards. That combines with two pancake blocks and one pickup.

As a unit, the B-CU offensive line allowed just two sacks on the day, and blocked for senior Isidore Jackson as he became the school’s all-time leading rusher with a season-high 182 yards and a score on the ground.

The 13th-ranked Wildcats return to the friendly confines of Municipal Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 9, playing host to MEAC foe Norfolk State at 4 p.m. The game will be streamed live on the CatEye Network.
