HERO Sports is going to count down each day by highlighting the best player in FCS football who wears the jersey number of the number of days to kickoff. You can find the running list of top players here.
*Note: Jersey numbers are from the 2017 season.
Wofford has an intriguing senior at one end of the line in Miles Brown.
Brown, a 310-pounder pegged as a third-team All-American by STATS in 2017, is heavier than the average defensive end. While the extra weight (as well as Wofford's defensive alignment) does suppress his sack numbers, Brown's size and athleticism gives Wofford's 3-man D-Line some extra run-stuffing ability. Last year, Wofford was a top-30 team in total defense and rushing defense; in related news, Brown has posted double-digit tackles for loss in back-to-back seasons.
Brown plays the position like a hybrid between a tackle and an end. Unsurprisingly, he piles up more tackles than average defensive end, with a combined 92 tackles over the last two season.
With 27 starts in the last two seasons, Brown is a capable, experienced weapon at the front of Wofford's defense. Now entering his senior season, we think he'll go out with a bang this fall.
