DeRon Brown Cops All-Region Honors, Represents MIT at Senior Classic

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior running back DeRon Brown added three more accolades to his already impressive resume. The two-time New England Football Conference (NEFC) Boyd Division Offensive Player of the Year, he collected plaudits from the New England Football Writers Association, D3football.com, and the Collegiate Development Football League (CDFL).

For the second year in a row, Brown earned a spot on the New England Football Writers Division II/III All-New England Team and became the Engineers’ only repeat honoree in the program’s history. A total of 31 players representing 20 different teams were selected for the award.

Brown was one of four NEFC Boyd Division players to be tabbed to the D3football.com All-East Region. A First-Team pick last season, he was named to the Second Team this week. Brown is eligible for All-America consideration with the team to be announced on Saturday, Dec. 19 following the conclusion of the NCAA Division III National Championship game.

Brown’s final honor was a historical one as he was invited to play in the inaugural DIII Senior Football Classic sponsored by the Collegiate Development Football League (CDFL). Representing the Engineers on the North team, he recorded the game-winning touchdown in a 14-0 victory. A recap of the event, including a quote by Brown, can be found at D3football.com.
