Bob Brown was a big man for his time in college football, the early 1960s. He stood 6-5 and weighed 260. In his junior year, 1962, The Boomer was named all-conference guard. His pass interception with one minute to play enabled Nebraska to beat Miami in the Gotham Bowl. In his senior season Brown made unanimous All-America at guard. Nebraska had a 10-1 season and won its first conference championship since 1940. In the Orange Bowl against Auburn, Brown's crushing block, which carried his man eight yards down field, opened the way for Dennis Claridge to go 68 yards for a touchdown. This was the second play of the game and helped Nebraska to a 13-7 victory. On defense, he played linebacker and had 49 tackles, a pass interception, and two fumble recoveries. Brown went to the pros, played offensive tackle, and was all-pro seven times. He played with the Philadelphia Eagles, 1964-1968, Los Angles Rams, 1969-1970, and Oakland Raiders, 1971-1973.
