A familiar face will be recognized as Honorary Captain before Saturday’s home game vs. Georgia Southern.

Brown would later earn his bachelor’s of science in criminal justice from Columbus State.
For the last 19 years, Captain Brown has been part of the Georgia Tech Football Security detail, spending gamedays on the Tech sidelines and traveling with the team on road trips. He is currently the Recruiting Coordinator / Off-Duty Coordinator for the Georgia State Patrol Department of Public Safety. He and his wife, Adrienne, have been married for 21 years and have two children.
