COLUMBUS, Ohio – The first African-American captain in Ohio State football history, Leo Brown, has died at the age of 84.
OSU said Brown died at his home in Lakewood, Colorado.
Brown was born in 1934 and was a native of Portsmouth, Ohio.
He performed well under coach Woody Hayes as he played on the 1955 Big Ten championship team and earned first-time all-Big Ten honors in 1956 as a junior.
In 1957, he was selected as a team captain along with Galen Crisco. The 1957 team also finished first the season's final United Press International poll. Auburn was named the top team in the Associated Press poll that season.
After his time at Ohio State, Brown served in the U.S. Air Force.
He retired as a colonel after he worked as a jaw and face surgeon for more than 20 years.
Services for Brown will be held on March 26 at St. Paul's Community Church in Lakewood
