Miss. - Ole Miss has lost one of its greatest athletes in the death of former football player and football coach John Brown. Brown's death came just two days after the end of the school's annual football season, and his downfall began at Gautier High School. Born on July 7, 1936, in Clarksdale, Mississippi, to a farmer father and mother of two children, Brown was born into a family of four.
Brown, who was elected to the All-Time Sugar Bowl teams in 1955 and '62, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988 and 2005. He also served his alma mater as a member of the U.S. Army National Guard and was assistant coach at Gautier High School and Mississippi State University, and was head coach of the Ole Miss basketball team and football team.

In 2007, he was named athletic director of Gautier High School, which included a $1.5 million scholarship from the U.S. Department of Education and $500,000 in scholarships.
In 1958, he was the only rookie on the team to start in the NFL Championship Game, when Baltimore defeated the New York Giants in what was officially called the greatest NFL game of all time. Faced with the possibility that his efforts could be blocked, Brown raced into the end zone with a 40-yard touchdown pass from Jim Brown to the Giants, officially one of the most famous games in NFL history.
His 92-yard run against Texas was the second in school history and held the school record to 997 when John Avery had 97 yards against Arkansas. Brown led Ole Miss in rushing with 1,921 yards, second in the SEC behind Jim Brown of Texas A & M (2,071).
Against the Longhorns, he rushed for 15 yards on 15 carries and completed three of eight passes for 58 yards and led the Rebels to a 27-14 victory over Texas A & M. He also completed 20 of his 12 passes (62.5 percent) for 155 yards, returned a fumble and scored 95 career points, averaging 39.3 yards per punt. In his senior season, he made 12 free throws over 50 yards from the throw line And he averaged 36.5 yards. Gautier failed to shut out Biloxi at home in Week 2 with a fourth-quarter lead, and then in Week 3 he squandered a 14-point lead against Mississippi State, which scored 28 unanswered points in the second half.
Gautier also lost to Vancleave, while he also intercepted two passes in the fourth quarter against Mississippi State, one each in the last two games.
Brown was in New Orleans for a ceremony where he was scheduled to attend class with Rebel Archie Manning in 2018. On that day, two Ole Miss greats were on the field for the Giants. Quarterback Charlie Conerly and wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Last year I was definitely hit a lot more than last year when I played against the Picayunes and Wayne Counties.
