Feb. 2, 2013
ALLEN, Texas – Kansas senior cornerback Greg Brown recorded four tackles and three pass breakups Saturday for the Texas All-Stars as part of the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star game, played at Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas. The National Team scored a 24-13 victory over Team Texas at the annual game.
Brown was one of 96 senior players chosen from programs across the country in all divisions to participate in this all-star game. The game showcases top college seniors who played high school or college football in Texas against top players from around the nation hoping to be selected in the 2013 NFL draft.
“I thought I played great and hopefully helped my stock a lot,” said Brown, who started all 12 games at corner for the Jayhawks in 2012.
“The experience was great and I’m proud to have such a supportive group of friends and family in my life to come out and watch me play in this game.”
The inaugural game in 2007 set a record for NFL signees in a first-year all-star game with 79 players signing NFL contacts. Since its inception, over 80 players who competed in the all-star game have been selected in the NFL draft and more than 400 have signed with an NFL team.
Brown is the eighth Jayhawk senior to participate in a postseason all-star game, joining teammates Dayne Crist, Tanner Hawkinson, Trevor Marrongelli, Bradley McDougald, Toben Opurum, Josh Williams and Duane Zlatnik.
