The AFCA Good Works team was established in 1992 to recognize extra efforts by players and staff off the field. Brown’s frequent visits to WVU Medicine Children’s, his ongoing work with WVU Medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic and the “Fifth Quarter” program he has implemented as reasons he was selected for this honor.
Brown is the first WVU representative on the Good Works team since receiver Tito Gonzales in 2008 and the fifth overall, joining Gonzales (2008), Eric de Groh (1995), David Mayfield (1994) and Mike Booth (1993).
