Wiki

Timothy Donell Brown (born July 22, 1966) is a retired American football wide receiver, who played college football for Notre Dame, where he won the Heisman Trophy, and in the National Football League (NFL). He spent sixteen years with the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders, during which he established himself as one of the NFL's most prolific wide receivers. His fame and success with the Raiders organization earned him the title Mr. Raider.

Before his college career, Brown played for Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas, the same school as 1938 Heisman Trophy winner Davey O'Brien. Despite his contributions, the team fared poorly, with a 4–25–1 record over his three years as a starter. Nevertheless, Brown was heavily recruited by major colleges. His five official visits were to Notre Dame, Nebraska, Oklahoma, nearby Southern Methodist and Iowa.

Brown chose Notre Dame and played there from 1984–1987, earning the nickname "Touchdown Timmy." In his first year, he set a freshman record with twenty-eight receptions. As a junior, he set a record with 1,937 all-purpose yards. He made the College Football All-America Team twice and won the Heisman Trophy in 1987, becoming the first wide receiver ever to win the award. His alma mater, Woodrow Wilson High School, became the first high school in history to produce more than one Heisman winner; as of 2007, Woodrow is still the only public high school with two winners, though private school Mater Dei has matched the record. During that year, he caught 34 passes for 846 yards, returned 34 punts for 401 yards, rushed for 144 yards, and gained 456 yards on 23 kickoff returns. He also scored eight touchdowns. Brown finished his career at Notre Dame with 137 receptions, a school record 5,024 all-purpose yards, and 22 touchdowns.
