Former Notre Dame star and NFL player Tim Brown has been announced as a keynote speaker for the StaND Against Hate Event happening November 10 from 7 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. in DeBartolo Hall at Notre Dame. Brown is expected to talk on a variety of topics such as faith, masculinity and racism during his talk and will stick around afterwards to sign books. The purpose of Notre Dame’s StaND Week is to bring awareness to matters like hate crimes and discrimination in an effort to prevent it from growing on campus blindly.
The Dallas, Texas native didn’t even get a start playing football until his sophomore year of high school, which he had to do secretly as his mother did not want him on the team. She eventually figured it out that Brown was playing football which the marching band called his home to ask why he had so many absences, but he did end up getting to stay with the sport. By the time he was ready to graduate from high school he received numerous offers for sports scholarships, but decided to commit to Notre Dame. Brown entered the 1988 NFL Draft as the 6th overall pick by the then, Los Angeles Raiders. He stayed with the Raiders franchise for 15 years before briefly joining Tampa Bay’s roster prior to retiring. Since leaving his playing career behind, Brown has been a college football analyst for ESPN and the general manager and co-owner of the Texas Revolution in the Indoor Football League.
Brown will be visiting Notre Dame on November 10th to give a keynote speech on his thoughts about racism, masculinity and faith as a part ot the campus’s StaND Against Hate event.
