WR Marlon Brown remaining upbeat after knee injury

ORLANDO, Fla. — Marlon Brown’s torn ACL ended his Georgia career on Nov. 3 against Ole Miss, but it hasn’t kept the receiver from enjoying the bowl experience.

He hit Universal Studios on Thursday, including a roller-coaster.

“I don’t know what it was called, but I was kind of scared,” Brown said.

Brown was having a breakout season, tied for the team lead in receptions before the senior injured his left knee. He had 27 catches for 469 yards and four touchdowns.

“I just can’t be too sad about it for too long,” Brown said. “Usually in life you’ve got to overcome things. Right now, I’m trying to stay positive.”

The Memphis, Tenn., native has kept an upbeat attitude that has impressed those around the program.

“I remember going to call him and talk to him not long after it happened,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “I was expecting a guy to really be in the tank, but he’s a mature man now. He knows things happen. He knows it’s not so much what happens to you, but how you handle it.”

Brown suffered the injury on a 30-yard reception. Ole Miss safety Trae Elston went low to make the tackle and hit Brown’s left knee with his helmet.

“I haven’t even seen the film of the actual play,” Brown said. “I felt him twisting my leg, but also felt him hit his helmet on my knee. I don’t know what caused it.”

Brown, who hopes to play in the NFL, said he expects to begin jogging by the end of February, but won’t be able to do anything at Georgia’s Pro Day this spring.
