"I have been involved in athletics my entire life," he said. "While at Jefferson College as a member of the men's tennis team, I was directly exposed to the workings of an athletic department. My involvement in collegiate athletics combined with my academic study of public administration eventually led me to study sports administration. I give thanks to the coaches and the athletic administrators in the Athletic Department who introduced me to a career possibility, and to Tom Maple, my political science professor, who reaffirmed my love for the study of politics and public administration."

Dr. Brown is the son of retired Jefferson College Tennis Coach and Physical Education Professor Lloyd Brown, whose career spanned 22 years at the community college.
