Brownlees kicked 42 goals in his debut season, finishing second in the Geelong goal-kicking to Percy Martini.[1] Despite managing a more modest total of 25 goals in 1915, it was enough to finish as their leading goal-kicker.[1][2] Also used as a fullback, Brownlees represented the VFL at the 1921 Perth Carnival.[3]

An elder brother, Rupe, also played over 100 games for Geelong.[4]
