Pro Football Player - Tight End
You tore two ligaments in your knee causing you to miss the 2015 season. How did your mindset and your love of the game help you heal?
When I got injured in 2014, I think what really helped me heal was the fact that everybody said I couldn’t come back. I’ve always had an underdog mentality, to overcome things and beat the odds. I think that’s what helped me. The adversity actually motivated me. Doctors and others saying I was done, that I could not recover, that I could not do it. In my mind, I knew I was going to go out and show them that I can do whatever I put my mind to. I know it’s cliche, but that’s literally what I did.

This former Oregon Duck wasn't sure he'd make it to the pros after sustaining an injury that would keep him on the sidelines for an entire season. But, Pharaoh Brown is tenacious and got back on the field his senior year. The tight end made it to the pros a year later and is currently playing for Cleveland..
• Pharaoh was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2017
• He attended and played collegiate football at the University of Oregon
