Keith Brown Named Freshman All-American

 



Dec. 7, 2012

Louisville, Ky. University of Louisville freshman linebacker Keith Brown was named a first team freshman All-American by FoxSports.net on Friday.

Brown becomes the second freshman All-America under head coach Charlie Strong, and the first since quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was tabbed on a number of teams last season.

The native of Miami, Fla., played in nine games for the Cardinals and was one of the team's top tacklers. He stands fifth on team with 56 tackles and has forced and recovered a fumble this season.

Making five starts, Brown registered 12 tackles in his first career start against Pitt and added a career-best 13 tackles in an overtime-win over Cincinnati. The Cardinals will take on fourth-ranked Florida in the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 in New Orleans, La.
