Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Edward Brown (October 26, 1928 - August 2, 2007) was an American football quarterback and punter in the National Football League. Brown went to high school in San Luis Obispo, California, and Hartnell College in Salinas, California. He played for the University of San Francisco Dons through 1951. On his senior year (1951), he quarterbacked the Dons to an undefeated 9-0 season, but the team did not receive a Bowl invitation, largely due to racism towards the black players on the team. Despite the increasing integration of college and pro football, the major bowls that year did not select teams that had black players, or they asked the teams to not bring their black players. The Dons refused to send a white-only squad, so they were snubbed.show more
