C D Hylton Coach - Bill Brown - Hall of Famer

Practice by day, induction by night

CHARLOTTESVILLE - Wednesday afternoon started off as a normal day for Hylton coach Bill Brown with football practice, but the nightcap was a once in a lifetime experience.
Brown was one of eight members to enter the 12th class of the Virginia High School Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Omni Hotel.
Brown's career is still active, but his resume already justifies the recognition. He has a combined 167-48-1 record between his career at Potomac and Hylton, as well as a pair of state championships with the Bulldogs.
Despite the numbers that back up his selection, Brown was humble as always.
``I had mixed emotions. I told my wife on the way down here, I said it feels like it's not real. It feels like it's almost a dream," Brown said. ``I didn't feel like it was my turn."
