The Eyes of Tim Brown

Tim Brown has always shown his strong loyalty to his home in Florida. The photo up above was taken at the Scarlet-White Game in April 2007; the "305" on his eyeblack is his area code in Miami. There's a great article on Tim and the late Jasper Howard and yesterday's UConn game in the NY Daily News today with a picture of an emotional Tim Brown being hugged by Devin McCourty with "JAZZ" on his eyeblack. The other eye read "RIP."
I hope that Tim Brown's sense of family now extends far beyond Miami, beyond Florida. I hope he knows how much his teammates, the people of Rutgers, and of New Jersey love him too, not just for his exceptional football ability, but for his heart.
