Vincent Brown is a third-year wide receiver out of San Diego State University. The Chargers selected him in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The Chargers stayed close to home with their first of two picks in the third round, grabbing San Diego State’s Brown, the third all-time leading receiver in school history with 209 catches and 3,110 yards. Brown, who ranked fifth in school history with 23 career touchdowns, helped the ’10 Aztecs to their first bowl win since 1969.
Brown demonstrated grit and resilience in 2013 as he was able to play in all 16 games just a year removed from a broken left ankle that cost him the entire 2012 season. He not only played, but he started 12 games and finished the year with 41 catches, good for 472 yards and a touchdown. His recovery also caught his teammates’ attention and at the end of the year, they voted him as the recipient of the team’s Ed Block Courage Award.
Brown studied philosophy at San Diego State and became the first member of his family to graduate from college when he earned his degree in May 2012. He completed his coursework at the conclusion of his rookie season with the Chargers and while doing so, co-authored an article that appeared in the Journal of the Philosophy of Sport in September 2012.
