I was born in Mansfield, Ohio to Anderson and Teresa Brown, Jr. later along with my younger brother Jamaal Brown. I went on to complete high school at Antelope Valley High School while competing as a three sport athlete, attending summer college courses and starting my early coaching career in the local Los Angeles youth recreational leagues. Later I enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and achieved a meritorious promotion to Lance Corporal and an Honorable Discharge. I have had the privilege to work and maintained positive professional careers in major national companies like Bank of America, Geico, and Jostens. During my coaching career I have maintained a winning record all while working to produce my first of many collegiate athletes.
