Jim Brown College Career Stats and Notes

Jim Brown’s collegiate career was filled with milestones. On the football field, he wasn’t just the running back, he also was a kicker. Brown also continued to be a multi-sport athlete for the Orangemen. In lacrosse, he earned first team All-American honors his senior season. He also played basketball at Syracuse and was one of the team’s leading scorers.  With all the multi-sport success he had, Brown decided football was the future and entered the 1957 NFL Draft.

 

 

 

 

 

Jim Brown NFL Career Stats and Notes

Jim Brown was sixth overall selection in the 1957 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. His career spanned nine seasons, but within that short time period, he amassed hall of fame numbers. By the time he retired in 1965, Brown shattered every major rushing record including most rushing yards all time, single season and game which all has been broken. He also set the record for most rushing and total TDs. But the numbers only tell some of the story of the great Jim Brown. Football fans and even his opponents marveled at his breakaway speed for a 6’2” 230 pound back. He shredded tackles with ease and could run the defender over as well.  No one saw a runner with his combination of size, power and speed in the history of the league up until that point.

 

 

 

 

 

Jim Brown NFL Championship Moment

If there is one game that capped the legendary Jim Brown’s career, it was the 1964 NFL Championship game against the Baltimore Colts. It wasn’t Brown’s best game statistically (137 yards rushing, 0 TD), but it gave him what his award studded NFL career's been missing: a title. The three-time MVP, behind a great defensive effort, upset the heavily favored Colts 17-0. Brown would play one more season and retire in 1965.
