USILA Scholar All-Americans
Brown was voted to the 2011 Liberty League all-league first team, and made the league's all-academic men's lacrosse team each year from 2009 to 2011. He guided a defense that led the league in penalty-killing percentage, caused turnovers per game and goals against average. The long-stick midfielder ranked second on the team with 39 ground balls and 19 caused turnovers. He was one of the founders of Hamilton Athletes Against Hunger.
The Continentals (11-3 overall) ended the year with a four-game win streak. The 11 wins are the most for the program since Hamilton also ended up 11-3 in 2006. The Continentals received votes in the final regular season Division III Top 20 coaches poll.
In 1989, the USILA Scholar All-America program was established to recognize student-athletes from USILA member institutions who have distinguished themselves academically, athletically and as citizens of their communities. The USILA selection committee chooses an overall team representing Division I, II and III.
