At MSU: Kevaughn Brown moves into his second and final year with the grid Bears this fall after he emerged as a mainstay in the Bears' reworked offensive line in the 2007 season, starting all 11 games for Missouri State at left guard. After transferring to Missouri State from Tyler (Texas) Junior College in January of 2007 Brown took part in spring drills his first year and went on to earn himself a regular spot in an offensive unit that was among the most productive in school history as the high-powered Bears averaged 36.3 points a game through the team's 6-5 season. Brown was one of three Bears who earned Valley offensive lineman of the week honors throughout the season when he picked up that accolade for his performance against Illinois State. At season's end he was also voted to a spot on the Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Newcomer team. Brown bids to continue providing key contributions to a tough Bears' offensive line that returns four 11-game starters and several others that saw significant playing time.
Background: Brown was a two-time junior college all-conference selection and earned All-American honorable mention selection in the offensive line in his sophomore season at Tyler.
Personal: Kevaughn Cordell Brown was born 8/5/85 in Port Arthur, Texas, the son of Kenneth Gunner and Valencia Brown. Kevaughn is majoring in criminology.
