Brown's Career is Forged in JSU Iron
Baseball had Cal Ripkin Jr. The NFL has Brett Favre. When it comes to ironmen,
around the Jacksonville State football program, Kenny Brown is hard to beat.
When the Gamecocks play their final game of the regular season Saturday at
Eastern Illinois, Brown will assume his usual spot in the secondary and take a
unique position in JSU football history.
The fifth-year senior safety will have started all 45 games he's played in a
JSU uniform, and that's believed to be a first in the Gamecocks' Division I-AA
Senior defensive end Greg Green also will have played in all 45 games of his
JSU career, but not all were starts. Senior bandit LeMarcus Rowell will have
started all 23 of his games as a Gamecock, but his JSU clock started ticking
only after he transferred from Auburn three years ago.
Current JSU offensive line coach Jeremy Sullivan was believed to have held
the Gamecocks' Division I record for consecutive starts. He played all 43 games
between 1998 and 2001, but didn't start his first three games.
