Hall Of Fame Induction Proves To Be Special Moment For Brown

Tim Brown savors the moment of 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony.

Brown burst onto the scene as a junior with a scintillating season-ending performance in a come-from-behind upset of USC, then used back-to-back punt returns for touchdowns in an early-season '87 game against Michigan State to cement his Heisman bid. Listed as a flanker, Brown utilized his ability as a pass receiver, rusher out of a full-house backfield and punt and kickoff returner to rank third nationally in all-purpose yardage as a junior (176.5 per game) and sixth as a senior (167.9). He finished his junior campaign with 254 all-purpose yards in the 38-37 win at USC (including a 56-yard punt return that set up the winning field goal), then returned punts for 66 and 71 yards for a pair of touchdowns in an early romp over eventual Big Ten and Rose Bowl champion Michigan State. Brown finished his career as Notre Dame's all-time leader in pass reception yards (2493) while also returning six kicks for touchdowns (three punts, three kickoffs). Despite constant double and triple coverage as a senior, he earned a reputation as the most dangerous player in college football. Brown was a first-round pick of the Los Angeles Raiders (sixth player chosen overall) in the '88 NFL draft. He has been selected to play in the NFL Pro Bowl in 1988, '91, '93, '94, '95, '96, '97, '99 and 2000.
