Hundreds Remember Coach Brown As Faithful Man

More than 200 people gathered at Trinity Church here in Lubbock to celebrate the life of Coach Dave Brown.

Coach Brown worked at Texas Tech for five years as an assitant football coach. But, many remember him as a professional athlete from his 16 year career in the NFL. On January 10, he collapsed while playing basketball at the Tech Rec Center and died of a heart attack. Funeral services were held out of state. So for many, this was their only chance to pay their final respects to Coach Brown. He was remembered Monday as a competitive athlete, a mentor and a friend....but, most of all a faithful Christian.

"They had an unbelievable man. He was a giant, a giant coach, giant football player and a magnificant Christian," said Pastor Ken Hutcherson.

Coach Brown is survived by his wife Rhonda and two sons.
