Greenville, S.C.: Sports business professional and agent Mike Brown, will be honored posthumously April 20th as the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame’s Humanitarian of the Year. Brown’s family and guests will be at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Greenville to accept the award.

The Humanitarian of the Year (HOY) Award honors those who have made a significant impact on football and the community and best exemplify the ideals of the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame. Past HOY award winners include Paul Kennemore, Dal Shealy, and Joe Moglia.

Mike Brown was born in High Point, NC, grew up in Raleigh, and graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. At Clemson, Mike was a student trainer under Fred Hoover, where he supported the baseball, basketball, and football teams. After graduating from Clemson, Mike spent time at the University of Florida working with the football team as a mentor and tutor. For many years, Mike worked in the manufacturing, aerospace, and defense industries. Years later, after a call and suggestion from his friend Dwight Clark, he began representing NFL players, and then, NFL and college football coaches full-time. Some of his most notable clients included Bruce Arians, Mike Mularkey, Chris Petersen, Rich Rodriguez and Dabo Swinney.

Brown was a pioneer in the art of football negotiations, and he made a significant impact in his community through nonprofit work. Among Brown’s charitable contributions were his assistance in creating Dabo’s All-In Team Foundation with Coach Swinney, the Arians Family Foundation, and working closely with Kathleen Swinney to raise money for breast cancer research.

Those being honored with Brown on April 20th, will be Blanchard-Rogers Trophy winner Deshaun Watson, and the Class of 2017 Inductees Felix Anthony “Doc” Blanchard (Legacy), Charlie Brown, Fisher DeBerry, Levon Kirkland and Dick Sheridan.

The Ceremony will include a Q&A of the inductees, a silent auction, an open bar, and a dinner. Before the Enshrinement Ceremony, there will be a golf tournament in the morning at Green Valley Country Club and a Sporting Clay tournament at McConnell Hall Shooting Preserve. Tickets and foursomes to the events can be purchased at www.scfootballhof.org/shop or contact Ben Bounds by email bounds@scfootballhof.org or call (864) 554-6277.
