Ted Brown: College Hall of Famer
Former N.C. State All-American running back Ted Brown hasn’t carried a football in a college game for 35 years, but he still holds career ACC career records for rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, rushing yards per game and 100-yard games. Brown joined guest host Fletcher Johnson on The Bald Faced Truth to discuss his recent selection to the College Football Hall of Fame
had a successful 8-year NFL career for the Minnesota Vikings after being selected 16th overall in the 1979 NFL draft. Brown was a small for a running back, but he made up for it by becoming a great all-around player. Brown had his finest season in 1981, rushing for 1,063 yards while catching 83 passes for another 694 yards and 8 total touchdowns.
Brown was overwhelmed when he found out he had been elected to the hall of fame.
“It meant everything, all the hard work you put in with your teammates, it has finally come to fruition,” said Brown.
It is the second hall of fame honor for Brown in the last seven months as he was inducted to the first ever class in the N.C. State Athletic Hall of Fame last October.
“That was dear to me, because that’s where I spent four years of my life with my teammates, going to school and meeting people,” said Brown. “That’s where I went from a boy and became a man.”
