    He had a good run.

    87 is pretty good.

    Hard to argue that.

    Was posting a thread right when you were:

    The greatest RB in football history AND the greatest college lacrosse player of all time passed today at 87.

    Many people don't know this, but he had roots here in coastal GA and was spent part of his youth on St Simons Island. His family home is in an area on the island called Harrington near the famous Bennie's Red Barn restaurant. I got to know one of Brown's daughters when I was working on a project here and got to meet him briefly. Brown's family were direct descendants of Africans who arrived on the Ga coast on the slave ship "Wanderer" in 1858 - a scandalous incident led by Charles Lamar that landed over 400 enslaved Africans on Jekyll Island. I got to talk with Brown and his daughter about this history and their family's time in coastal Georgia. One of the more interesting conversations I've had in my life.
