One of Our Lady’s all-time greatest players. Ross Browner was one of the most decorated defensive players in the history of college football. At the University of Notre Dame he was a four-year starter at defensive end in 1973 and 1975–77. He was a unanimous All-America his junior and senior seasons of 1976 and 1977. In 1976, he won the Outland trophy as the nation's best interior or defensive lineman also in 1976 United Press Internationalnamed him Lineman of the Year. He won the Lombardi Trophy as the nation's best lineman and the Maxwell Award as the nation's best player and again won the UPI Lineman of the Year Award, the only player ever to win it twice. In the decade of the 1970s, Browner was the only lineman who won the Maxwell. In 1977, he also placed fifth in voting for the Heisman Trophy. During his senior year in college, he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated with the subheading of "Notre Dame's Peerless Ross Browner." I didn't realize until I read about his passing, that he had a son, Max Starks, that was a 10 year NFL offensive lineman, that won 2 Super Bowls with the Steelers. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/01/05/former-bengals-star-ross-browner-dies-from-complications-of-covid-at-67/ 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
