Bio

Antonio Brown is a wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In four seasons, he has been selected to the Pro Bowl twice. In 2013, Brown became the record holder for the most receiving yards in a single season by any Steelers player with 1,499 yards.

Early Life

Brown was born on July 10, 1988 in Miami Florida. Growing up in Liberty City, there was very little positivity to latch onto during his youth. Homeless by age 16, one of the bright spots in Brown’s life was football. He played for Norland High School in Miami Florida and Prep Christian Academy in North Carolina. Spending a year at Prep Christian Academy improved Brown’s academic focus, enabling his college enrollment.

Central Michigan Chippewas

Despite beginning his college career as a walk-on for the Central Michigan Chippewas, he quickly earned a football scholarship at the University. He proceeded to have an outstanding three seasons ranking high in MAC conference receiving, kick and punt returning leaderboards. In 2007, he recorded 102 receptions, the most of any MAC Conference player that year. In 2008, he led the MAC Conference in punt and kick return yards. He amassed 31 total touchdowns and 3,199 receiving yards in his collegiate career before foregoing his senior season.

Pittsburgh Steelers

In the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Brown was selected by the Steelers. The draft pick originally belonged to the Arizona Cardinals before it was traded to Pittsburgh along with Bryant McFadden in exchange for a fifth round pick and QB John Skelton. Brown had a breakout sophomore year in 2011, hauling in 66 catches for 1,108 yards. He topped that performance with 110 catches for 1,499 receiving yards in 2013, emerging as QB Ben Roethlisberger’s primary option on offense.
