Hall Of Famer, Former Academic And Football All-American Monty Brown Returns To Ferris
Monty Brown, a standout linebacker who was both an academic and athletic first-team All-American at Ferris State University, returned to Big Rapids to share words of wisdom with members of the current Bulldog squad.
Brown, who still remains close with members of the coaching staff including head coach Jeff Pierce and defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Duane Wilson, was happy to come back to Big Rapids to offer some of his experiences to young players coming up.
Brown, who has been successful as a student-athlete at Ferris, transitioned successfully into a pro football career as a player on two Super Bowl teams, in the National Football League; then as a professional wrestler, reaching the high levels in the business; as a personal trainer and so much more.
Here is a little clip from the time Brown shared with me during his visit to Ferris on Wednesday as he stopped by football practice.
