Northwood took on Jimtown and was dominated from the start. The Panthers lost 24-0 and in the process abandoned the run early. They also suffered with penalties, giving them long 1st and 2nd downs, not giving Brown much of a chance to shine at running back.
"Our offense just had trouble the whole game and kept shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties," said Brown to HawkeyeInsider.com. "A lot of our offensive line is inexperienced which kinda of hurt us, but our defense did pretty good."
The junior ran the ball seven times for 36 yards and a 15-yard pass completion. He also recorded seven tackles on defense as a outside linebacker.
"I'm staying positive and am moving on," said Brown. "One thing which sort of hurts my stats on defense is that I play weak, so a lot of teams in my conference rarely run to my side.
"All I know is that I'm really looking forward to this week."
In just seven games last year at running back, Brown rushed for 670 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. It's drawn the attention from programs like Iowa, Indiana, Northwestern, Michigan State, Kentucky, Illinois, Notre Dame, and Michigan.
