Career highlights

Originally from Lilydale, Victoria and known for his fierce style of play, Brown's highest achievements in football were playing in the 1995 premiership and winning the 1998 Carlton best and fairest.[1]

Brown will long be remembered for his gripping tackle on Dean Wallis in the 1999 Preliminary Final against Essendon. With Carlton desperately hanging on a one-point lead, and with just seconds remaining, Brown laid a bear hug on Wallis as he tried to baulk him and run into an open goal from 50 metres out. Carlton won the match by a solitary point.[2]

He retired from football at the end of the 2000 season. He is the son of former Australian netball team coach, Joyce Brown.[1]
