Roosevelt "Rosie" Brown
Birth: Oct. 20, 1932
Death: Jun. 9, 2004

Professional Football Player. A native of Charlottesville, Virginia, Brown was picked as a 27th-round draft pick from Morgan State in 1953. He played as an offensive tackle for the New York Giants in the 1950s and 1960s. At 255lbs he played 13 years in all for the New York Giants. Noted for his pass-blocking ability, he could pull and lead running plays as well. In 1956 Brown was named the National Football Leagues (NFL) lineman of the year, and also helped his team beat the Chicago Bears in a 47-7 win in the championship game that same year. After retiring from football he joined his team as their assistant offensive line coach and as a scout. Brown was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 1975, and in 2000 he was named to the NFL's 75th Anniversay Team. Brown passed away in June 2004 at the age of 71 after suffering a heart attack in Mansfield Township, New Jersey. (bio by: K)
