He broke six track and field records, and holds the school record in the two-mile event.  He also ran a leg in the school record setting distance medley relay team, which was set in 1976. Brown was named to the 1975 All-Ohio Valley Conference cross country team, and won the 1976 OVC Indoor One Mile Championship as well as the 1976 Distance Medley Relay Championship.
