Kyle Moore-Brown Set to be Inducted into Arena Football League Hall of Fame
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Former Kansas standout Kyle Moore-Brown will receive one of the highest honors from the Arena Football League. On Friday, July 31 Moore-Brown will be recognized as an AFL Hall of Famer when the Arizona Rattlers take on the San Jose SaberCats.
Brown is one of four players who will be inducted in this 2014 HOF class. He will be joined by FB/LB Andre Bowden, a three-time ArenaBowl champion and All-Arena selection; WR Damian Harrell, a five-time All-Arena selection, two-time Offensive Player of the Year and the League’s all-time receiving leader; and DS Omarr Smith, a four-time ArenaBowl champion who holds the record for most career ArenaBowl tackles.
Moore-Brown’s lasting legacy shined at Kansas where he was a three-year letterwinner at defensive tackle from 1990-92, and helped the Jayhawks post a 8-4 overall record in 1992, capped by a 23-20 victory over BYU in the Aloho Bowl, the Jayhawks first bowl win in 31 years.
“I never wanted to be average,” said Moore-Brown of his career in the AFL. “I wanted to be the best and through hard work and overcoming adversity, God saw it fit for me to be placed in the Hall of Fame.”
Moore-Brown left no doubt in anyone’s mind that he was worthy of this HOF induction. Throughout his career he played 15 seasons, playing on both the offensive and defensive lines, winning two championships and being named to the All-Ironman team three times. Moore-Brown also set a record for playing in 236 consecutive games.
Moore-Brown set high standards for himself and never looked back.
“Football is my passion and I loved coming to work every day,” said Moore-Brown. “Time used to leave me on the field, I’d think to myself ‘man practice is already over’. I was having fun, doing what I loved to do.”
The festivities will begin on Thursday, July 30, with the AFL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Followed by on field recognition in the July 31 Rattlers vs. SaberCats game.
