Drew Brown continued a family tradition of outstanding kicking at Nebraska with a solid season as a true freshman in 2014. The Dallas area product took control of the starting place-kicking chores from the outset of the season and went on to rank among the Big Ten leaders in scoring.

Drew Brown is the younger brother of former Husker kicker Kris Brown, who ranks as the second-leading scorer in Nebraska history, and played more than a decade in the National Football League. The younger Brown set a Nebraska freshman scoring record with 101 points, breaking the previous record held by his older brother.

Brown is part of a strong group of returning specialists including starting punter Sam Foltz and kicker Mauro Bondi who has handled NU’s kickoff duties.

Brown had three games with two field goals. Brown also handled kickoff duties for part of the season, booting 14 touchbacks.

Brown made a 44-yard field goal in his NU debut against Florida Atlantic and made six PATs. He connected on 2-of-3 field goals at Fresno State and also made a season-high seven PATs. He also made a pair of field goals (19 and 39 yards) against Miami and had three touchbacks.

Before Nebraska (Southlake Carroll HS)
Drew Brown brought a familiar name to the Nebraska kicking game after a standout career at Southlake Carroll High School in the Dallas area. Brown is the younger brother of former Husker kicker Kris Brown, who ranks second at Nebraska in career scoring with 388 points from 1995 to 1998. The younger Brown was one of four Texans in Nebraska's 2014 recruiting class marking the seventh straight year the Lone Star State has supplied the most players to the NU recruiting class. Brown was named the first-team kicker on the DFW all-area team as a senior and earned honorable-mention Class 5A all-state honors. He connected on 9-of-11 field goals as a senior, with a long of 51 yards, and made 89-of-90 PAT attempts, helping Coach Hal Wasson's team to an 11-2 record and trip to the third round of the 5A Division 1 playoffs. Brown was perfect on 97 PAT attempts as a junior, while hitting on 9-of-10 field goals, as Carroll posted a 12-2 record and reached the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. Brown was also one of the state's top kickers during his sophomore season, helping Southlake Carroll to a perfect 16-0 record and Class 5A Division 1 state title. Brown hit on 17-of-21 field goals with a long of 49 yards, and made 63-of-64 extra points. Brown committed to Nebraska in June and did not take any other visits. He was ranked among the top dozen kickers in the nation by 247 Sports.
