During a recent visit back to Lynchburg, former Flames standout football player and current Jacksonville Jaguar wide receiver Mike Brown took time to visit with Alan York of the Liberty Flames Sports Network.
Brown recently completed his second season with the Jaguars, where he played in 11 games and started six contests. He finished the year ranked third on the team in receiving yards (446) and fourth in receptions (32). He was one of four Jaguars with multiple touchdown receptions in 2013, finishing the year with his first two career NFL touchdowns.
Last year, Brown spent 15 weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad before being elevated to the 53-man active roster where he played in the final two games of the year.
Brown was a 2010 and 2011 Walter Payton Award candidate and helped Liberty win Big South Conference titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010. A three-year starting quarterback for Liberty, Brown finished his senior season with the Flames with 2,664 passing yards and 18 touchdowns, to go along with 437 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns in 2011.
Brown finished his career at Liberty with 6,072 passing yards, 45 passing touchdowns, 1,875 rushing yards, 29 rushing touchdowns and ranked second in school history with 7,947 total offensive yards.
