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.
