David Brown truly represented the character and unselfishness of the 2002 Red Tornado State Championship Football Team. Dave became a starter at nose guard during his freshman year under coach Whitey Williams as the Tornadoes became the PIAA AA State Silver Medalists. Browny then started 15 games at nose guard as the Big Red went on to a State Championship during his sophomore season for coach Mike Brennan. As a junior, Dave volunteered to move to offensive guard to help the team and then was switched to fullback, where he became a devastating blocker as the Tornadoes won an Eastern Conference Crown in 2001. As a senior, David helped the Tornadoes to an undefeated 15-0 record by running for 577 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also contributed 87 tackles – 28 for loss – and 8.5 sacks from his nose guard position.

David finished his career with 283 tackles and 16 sacks for 97 yards lost. The 283 tackles rank 9th on the all time MCA list and represent the second most ever for a down lineman in MCA history behind Jay Malakoski. David’s tough, aggressive attitude helped the Tornadoes to a 48-9 record during his 4 years; allowing the Tornadoes to win three District Championships, one Eastern Conference Championship, two State Championships, and one State Runner-Up. For his efforts, David was recognized as a first team all state defensive lineman by the Associated Press as well as Pennsylvania Football News .PFN also named him defensive player of the year. He is the son of Judy McCollum and David Brown.
