Brown Named to 2013 AFCA Division II All-America Team

Updated:

Pittsburg State University senior wide receiver John Brown was named to the 2013 American Football Coaches Association NCAA Division II All-America Team today (Dec. 17).

Brown, a Homestead, Fla., native, caught 61 passes for 1,198 yards (19.6 ypc, 99.8 ypg) and 14 touchdowns during his senior campaign. He also rushed the ball 17 times for 100 yards (5.9 ypc) and two touchdowns. In special teams play, Brown averaged 32.4 yards per kickoff return with one touchdown and he averaged 11.5 yards per punt return on the season.

Brown is one of four repeat selections to the AFCA Division II All-America Team, joining Bloomsburg running back Franklyn Quiteh, Lindenwood cornerback Pierre Desir and St. Cloud State safety Jack Moro as repeat selections from 2012.

With the honor, Brown becomes a three-time All-American for the Gorillas (2011-13). He received All-America honors from the Associated Press, Daktronics and the Don Hansen Football Committee in 2011. Brown was a consensus All-America selection in 2012 earning accolades from the AFCA, A.P., Daktronics and the Don Hansen Football Committee.

Brown finished his decorated three-year Pitt State career with 185 catches for 3,380 yards and 32 touchdowns - all school records.

Last week, he was selected to participate in the East-West Shrine Game at St. Petersburg, Fla., on Jan. 18.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions.

    Pittsburg State University baseball head coach Tom Myers can’t stop smiling. And he has good reason. Thanks to the generosity of several anonymous donors, the university is installing new turf on its baseball and softball fields. The summer project will provide a wall-to-wall AstroTurf brand synthetic turf on all playing surfaces, batting cages and bullpen areas. The turf will be similar to that currently in use at Carnie Smith Stadium and the Robert W.
