Paul was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 1998. His citation is copied below:
Paul Brown was already distinguished when he came to Washington College in fall 1970. In his last two years of high school, he played on Towson High’s varsity soccer and baseball teams and upon his graduation Paul was awarded the prestigious “Ted Levin Award” for outstanding achievement in academics and athletics. He was placed at Washingon College accordingly - out standing in our fields.
For four more falls Paul was a star performer on our soccer field and in the springtime he played second base position for Shomen Baseball. His speed and agility made him a dangerous offensive threat in both sports. During Paul’s years as a soccer player, our soccer teams participated in six championship playoff games for the Mason-Dixon and the Middle Atlantic Conferences, we won the James Madison University Invitational Tournament, and received an NCAA Invitation for post-season play offs. At these play-offs the Sho’men lost to Baltimore University after three overtime periods.
Paul was Sho’Men’s Soccer co-captain during his junior year and as a tri-captain during his senior year. He was recognized by both the Mason-Dixon Conference and the Middle Atlantic Conference by being selected for post-season All-Conference Teams all four years of competition. During his senior year he was also selected to the All-South All-American Squad.
Famous for his outstanding soccer ability, he was also an excellent fielder in baseball and a dangerous baserunner. He earned the starting second base position all four years that he participated.
In two of the years he was selected for post-season recognition. Although he never earned a letter in basketball, he was a member of the basketball squad during his freshman year.
At his graduation from Washington College, Paul received the Eldridge L. Eliason Award and the Thomas Reeder Spedden Medal. Both prizes recognize scholarship and athletic achievment.
After college Paul served with the Peace Corps in Africa. Returning to the U.S., he earned his Doctorate in French Literature at Emory University. He is presently serving as an associate professor of French and director for Study Abroad at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia.
It is an honor and pleasure for Washington College to induct Paul M. Brown into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this 3rd day of Oct. 1998.
