Jerome "Willie" Brown
Birth: Feb. 4, 1965
Brooksville
Hernando County
Florida, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1992
Brooksville
Hernando County
Florida, USA

Professional Football Player. He played in the National Football League as a defensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles. An All-American during his college days with the University of Miami, he helped the Hurricanes to an undefeated season in 1986, and played in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl. Drafted number #9 overall by the Eagles in the first round of the 1987 Amateur Draft, he would go on to be a part of a stellar Eagles defensive line that included future Hall of Famer Reggie White, and all-Pros Clyde Simmons and Mike Pitts. His rookie year saw him play well enough to capture Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, and his outstanding play would garner him All-Pro honors in 1990 and 1991. His career came to an end in June 1992 when he was involved in a one car accident in his hometown that claimed his life. The Eagles retired his #99 Jersey, which still remains popular with fans today. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
