Five things you need to know about Richie Brown


Brown is Mississippi State’s best tackler

The junior linebacker leads the Bulldogs in tackles with 61 total tackles, 30 solo and 31 assists. Linebacker Beniquez Brown, the second best tackler on the team has 44 total tackles. Brown was named SEC Defensive player of the Weeks on Sept. 28. Brown was also named to the Butkus Award watchlist, an award given to the nation’s top linebacker.

Brown recorded 3 INTs against Texas A&M last season

Brown became the 3rd FBS player to record three interceptions in one game. Brown picked off Texas A&M’s quarterback, Kenny Hill, three times during a game in October of 2014. Brown became the first SEC player since 2008 and the sixth player in MSU school history to record three interceptions in one game. Thankfully, Brown has only collected one interception this season.

Brown is a married man

Brown married former Mississippi State softball player Erin Nesbit last May. Mrs. Brown played shortstop for and now works in the office of public affairs at MSU. Her twitter handle is @beardwife_05 and that’s kind of awesome/weird. I don’t know how anyone can get married in college. I can barely remember what day of the week it is.



Brown has been said to look like Ulysses S. Grant

Brown was featured on SEC Nation back in 2014 because of his similar appearance to the former president. “Countless times I’ve seen that picture pop up,” Brown said. “I can’t forget it now. My whole family has seen it. My cousin Robby, who looks just like me, completely agrees with it. He thinks we both look like him.” The similarity kind of freaks me out.



Brown can play the piano

However, they never actually showed his fingers touching the piano keys in this video so this could all be lie. The world may never know.
