2011: Started seven games at safety, including the last four after Matt Johnson was lost for the season with a shoulder injury. He had two passes broken up in the 2011 season, with both coming against Northern Colorado (10/15/11) when he also had four tackles and an interception he returned 11 yards. He had a career-high 10 tackles in back-to-back games versus Portland State (10/29/11) and Cal Poly (11/12/11), as he had 24 tackles in EWU’s last three games. His performance against PSU earned him team defensive player of the week honors. He finished with 51 to rank fifth on the team.

2010: Played in 14 games and made five starts late in the year at safety. He made the first start of his career against Southern Utah (11/13/10) and had five tackles to go along with two of the three passes broken up he had during the season.

He also had an interception in that game, one of only three interceptions that Blue Hen quarterback Pat Devlin had in 384 attempts during the 2010 season. Brown had four tackles in Eastern’s 38-31 overtime victory in the quarterfinals versus North Dakota State (12/11/10). He helped the Eagle defense rank first nationally in interceptions (total of 26) and turnovers gained (47), and finish sixth nationally in red zone defense, as it allowed just 38 scores in 58 opponent trips inside the Eagle 20-yard line.

2009: Redshirted. Was selected as the team’s defensive scout team player of the week once.
