Collegiate careerEdit

A.B., a transfer from Big East rival Pittsburgh, was one of the premiere backs for the Mountaineers during their 1988 run to the National Championship, where they lost to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. A.B., along with Undra Johnson and Eugene Napoleon, made up the great depth at running back. A.B., whose final game as a Pitt Panther was his 100-yard performance against the Mountaineers, ranks as one of the more memorable backs in West Virginia University. In his senior year, Brown led West Virginia with 913 yards on 167 carries.[1]

Professional careerEdit

Brown was selected by the Jets in the eighth round of the 1989 NFL Draft.[2] As a pro in the NFL, A.B. rushed for a career 117 yards with a touchdown in his four season career with the New York Jets. After his stint in the NFL, Brown became a club tennis professional.
