When Brandon Brown was hitting the field at St. Anthony’s High School, no one could’ve imagined he would one day become a high-ranking member of the New York Giants front office.
But this week the Giants made it official, announcing the Glen Cove native as the team’s new assistant general manager.
Back in 2006, Brown was a Sports Illustrated Northeast All-American playing football for St. Anthony’s; he went on to play cornerback at Fordham.
After graduating from Fordham, Brown earned a Juris Doctor degree from Barry University Law School in Orlando, Florida.
He now becomes the right-hand man to new Giants general manager Joe Schoen.
“Brandon has a strong reputation around the league as a leader, evaluator and consensus builder,” Schoen said. “He is a tireless worker who has experience in pro personnel and college scouting. He has a progressive approach to the evaluation process. Brandon will help lead the player personnel department, as well as assist across the entire football operation.”
Brown spent the last five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, most recently as their director of player personnel. He began his NFL scouting career with Indianapolis in 2015.
His alma mater wasted no time in tweeting their support for their fellow Friar.
