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.

IN THE RECORD BOOK

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.

DID YOU KNOW?

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

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

The Pirates are not going to overpower many teams in the post — they’re tallest player is 6-foot-9 freshman Rico Quinton — and they are young, but…

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…

These three questions appeared in the Pirate Gameday section previewing the East Carolina-Houston football game, which ended as a 42-20 win for Houston that could have been more lopsided if not for a few late touchdowns by the Pirates.

Speaking of those touchdowns ... 

1. Which ECU quarterback…

A week-long theme of a possible new-look East Carolina football offense did not come to fruition Saturday night against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

On a night when ECU had its first announced crowd of less than 30,000 since the finale of the 2005 season, the Pirates used all three of their…

East Carolina’s football offense started too slow and delivered too little again on Saturday night in a 42-20 beating at the hands of visiting Houston.

From third-down miscues to an inability to reach the red zone to a touchdown drought that stretched seven full quarters, ECU (2-4, 0-3…

On Saturday night, East Carolina passed the halfway point in the college football season amid the same uncertainty that has loomed around Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium the last few years.

The Pirates, in a make-or-break season for third-year head coach Scottie Montgomery, lost 42-20 to Houston for a 2-4…

Q: You lead the Pirates with 7.5 sacks this season. Does one stand out the most?

A: Not really, but there are a lot of team memories. That win against Old Dominion (on Sept. 29 in which ECU totaled nine sacks), just that whole game was a lot of fun.

Q: What is your favorite holiday?

A: Halloween,…
