Brown Receives Weekly Honors from D3football.com, UAA & PAC

Case Western Reserve University sophomore defensive end Cameron Brown was selected to the D3football.com Team of the Week, and was named both the University Athletic Association and Presidents' Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week after helping to lead the 25th-ranked Spartans to a 16-14 win over Geneva College at DiSanto Field in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday. 

Brown finished the game with 10 tackles, including seven solo, while also registering a sack and two total tackles for a loss, forcing a pair of fumbles and recovering one, breaking up a pass and notching a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry.  He tallied three tackles, including a sack, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in the fourth quarter of the game alone, helping CWRU secure the victory.

In his first season playing collegiate football after transferring from Cincinnati, Brown has 34 tackles, including a team-leading eight for a loss, and also leads the team with four quarterback hurries.  This was the second time this year that he has been named the UAA Defensive Player of the Week, and his first PAC Defensive Player of the Week honor.  He also earned PAC Rookie of the Week honors on October 10th.

Brown also becomes the third Spartan this year and 11th player overall in the program's history to be named to the D3football.com Team of the Week.  He is the first CWRU defensive lineman to earn the honor since Brian Calderone in 2008.

Brown and the Spartans improved to 7-0 overall and to 6-0 in the PAC with the win on Saturday.  The Spartans will be off from PAC competition this week, traveling to St. Louis, Missouri to face UAA rival Washington University (Mo.) at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 29th.  The winner of Saturday's game will clinch at least a share of the 2016 UAA Championship.
