NOS. 20-11 | Marshall’s Troy Brown: Super Bowl a time to ‘celebrate a rare moment’


To commemorate the Super Bowl’s golden anniversary on Feb. 7, we compiled ASN’s 50 greatest NFL championship competitors of the past 50 years.

Two rounds of voting narrowed 100 nominees from ASN-affiliated schools to the final 50, then you ranked them. Today we reveal Nos. 20-11 in ASN’s Super Poll 50 — including Marshall’s Troy Brown.

Brown told The Web Show’s Matt Lincoln via Skype the part of Super Bowl week he misses most is “all the joy, spending time with family … (to) celebrate a rare moment.”

Brown, who celebrated three rare moments as a Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots, also revealed a rare side of head coach Bill Belichick on The Web Show.

Read Brown’s story and see where he ranks in the countdown.

The final countdown begins Monday, Feb. 1, with Nos. 10 and 9. We reveal two per day during Super Bowl 50 week culminating on Friday, Feb. 5, with Nos. 2 and 1.

On Feb. 6, we will announce the All-ASN Super Bowl team, the top vote-getters at each position.
