Albany Firebirds Touchdown Eddie Brown Stars In ESPN Special [Video]
The NFL's leader in receiving yards is Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown. Brown spent a stint of his childhood running around the Albany, NY area.
Many of the Capital Region's own will remember him as Touchdown Eddie Brown's son, Brown played seven years for the local AFL team Albany Firebirds. Brown was voted the best player in league history, and in 2011 was voted into the Arena Football League Hall of Fame.
Brown began his coaching career while in Albany. He joined the coaching staff at Shaker High School as the junior varsity Wide Receiver coach, as well as freshman basketball.
