CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Coastal Carolina linebacker E.J. Brown (Goose Creek, S.C.) has been named the Big South Conference Defensive Player of the Week for games played during Week 4 of the 2009 regular-season, it was announced today by the Conference office.
Brown recorded a career-best five tackles in Coastal Carolina’s 28-7 win over North Carolina A&T, including a pair of solo stops, a half-sack for minus-9 yards, and his first career interception. Brown’s 29-yard interception return in the second quarter set up the Chanticleers’ second score of the contest, one of two plays he made that ended A&T drives.
Coastal Carolina has the week off before opening Big South Conference action, Sat., Oct. 10 at 7 p.m., hosting VMI at Brooks Stadium.
