Born: Nov. 15, 1943 in Port Arthur, Texas
A 1962 graduate of Lincoln High School, Aaron Brown starred collegiately at the University of Minnesota where he was a two-time All-Big Ten selection and, as a senior, was a consensus All-American selection.
Brown was a 1966 first round draft pick of the Kansas City Chiefs, started at right defensive end for the Chiefs from 1968-72 and played in the 1970 Super Bowl in New Orleans where Kansas City defeated the Minnesota Vikings.
After leaving Kansas City, Brown spent his final two NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers. Brown moved back to Southeast Texas and was tragically killed in 1997 by a motorist as he walked on the highway near his Atascocita home.
