NEW LONDON, Conn.-As the fall semester winds down and our Cadet-Athletes are wrapped up in exams the Athletic Department will take a look at the Top Moments from the Coast Guard fall sports season. The Department has compiled a top-ten list and will unveil one a day for ten business days starting with number ten and culminating with the announcement of the top moment on Tuesday, December 24th.
Today, in our Top Moments series, we look at our #4 moment which was junior Collis Brown's record-breaking day on the gridiron. Brown, a wide receiver on the football team, was named to the 2013 New England Football Conference (NEFC) all-conference team after establishing a new school record for receiving yards in a season with 983 yards, scoring six touchdowns, and throwing for one other.
While his season stats are tremendous, Brown will be forever remembered in Coast Guard lore for his performance on Saturday, October 5th when he reeled in a school-record 244 receiving yards including a pair of touchdown grabs to lead the Bears to a thrilling 41-38 victory over Western New England.
Stay tuned as tomorrow's installment of the Top Moment series will reveal the #3 moment from the fall season.
