Q: You had 90 receiving yards and a touchdown against North Carolina on Sept. 8, earning the game ball after the Pirates’ 41-19 win. What did you do with the ball?

A: I’m giving it to my son (5-year-old Quey), and it’s unbelievable just to be able to say that I can give that to my son. When he grows up, he can go look at that and say, ‘My dad won a game ball and gave it to me.’ It’s just unbelievable to think about that.

Q: Is Quey a big inspiration for you in football and off the field?

A: I want him to know that I will do anything in my power for him. I want him to be a better person than I was growing up.

Q: How different is it being a fifth-year senior compared to some of the younger guys on the team?

A: It feels a lot different. I remember the seniors (in past years) and for their senior day and playing so hard because they taught me so much. Now it’s like I’m on my way out and I just want to play harder than I’ve ever played before.

Q: You represented the Pirates at American Athletic Conference media days in Newport, R.I., this summer and enjoyed the seafood at the signature clam bake event, right? 

A: Oh yeah, I’m from Wilmington so I have always been around it. I love seafood and it’s a lot of fun (at AAC media days), but really it’s about all of us (fellow representatives Garrett McGhin, Alex Turner and Bruce Bivens) coming together and having fun with it.


Brown has the most receiving yards in a game in Pirate history with 270 a year ago on nine catches in a 48-20 win against Cincinnati … He also brought in two separate 95-yard receptions in 2017 to hold the top spot for the longest pass play in school history … Brown is currently fifth in ECU career receiving yards with 1,976, which is just behind Troy Smith (1995-98) and his 1,982.


Brown enjoys playing the drums and lists that as a top hobby. Football, basketball and music have long been passions in his life.
