Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Austin Brown

Position: Cornerback

Number: #42

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-0

Weight: 180 lbs.

Hometown: Simi Valley, CA

2013 Stats: Did not record any statistics in 2013.

2014 Projections: I can't imagine that Brown will be a contributor for the Eagles in 2014, even if the Eagles are a little thin in the secondary. There is so little information on him online it was hard to figure out who he was. He doesn't have a HUDL page, or a Rivals page, or much of anything.

How'd He Get Here: Brown was given a roster spot as a walk on in the Spring of 2014

Twitter Feed: I believe this is him, not a 100% sure. @ABrown52

Uniform History: Along with sharing the number with Alex Howell, there has not been many #42's in the history of BC football. The first known player to wear #42 for BC was guard John Maloney in 1914.  Other than that there really wasn't a lot of successful Eagles who have worn the number. Justice Smith wore the number in the 90's on his way to rushing for 1,300 yards in his career. CB Isaac Johnson wore the number in 2008 & 2009.
