A Comeback for Monty Brown??
Let's hope the rumors are true - former Ferris football All-America linebacker Monty Brown is talking about a comeback to the world of professional wrestling, where he was a rising star in the WWE through his alter-ego Marquis Cor Von. I even purchased his action figure at the local Meijer. He recently told a reporter for M-Live that he's negotiating with WWE for a return after taking a personal leave to help friends and family. Monty is also busy launching his own clothing line "Scripture Clothing."
Monty, the first Bulldog athlete in school history to be named both first-team All-America and first-team Academic All-America, was the leader of a football resurgence at Ferris during the 1990s. The linebacker went on to play for five years in the National Football League and was a member of two different Super Bowl teams. He's one of the great, generous people that make Ferris such a unique place. Look for Monty visiting with players and coaches on the sidelines at Ferris football games or hopefully on the TV screen soon. (contact Ted Halm, firstname.lastname@example.org)
