Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown recently spoke as the guest speaker for this year’s Second Annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Impact Awards that happened on April 30 at the Wagner Noel. Having Brown as the speaker was definitely a draw to get people to attend the event, and it was free of charge and open to the public. During his talk, Brown shared stories about his fascinating career in the NFL and also how he managed to get there. It was a very motivational talk, and football fans from all over the area made sure to attend this awards ceremony and get a glimpse at one of the sport’s greatest players.
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 spoke at the Second Annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Impact Awards earlier this spring and it was an incredible experience for everyone who got to attend. Hopefully, next year’s event will be able to match up to this year’s excitement.
