Detroit Lions’ legend Lomas Brown was honored with the Outstanding Service Award by the Detroit NFL Alumni Association.
Brown was awarded the honor in recognition of his work in the community as a part of the Detroit NFL Alumni Association along with current Lions safety, Don Carey. Known as one of the most prominent offensive tackles in the league, the former Lions’ offensive lineman has made a name for himself as one of the top 100 Detroit Lions’ players of all time. His prowess on the field led to a long career spanning 18 years with 11 seasons spent serving as a key piece to the Lions’ offensive line before going on to win a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
After the seven-time Pro Bowler hung up his cleats, fans could tune into “ESPN First Take,” ESPN News and the NFL Network to catch Brown’s various stints as a sports analyst. When not making the rounds as the co-host of a sports radio show on WXYT-FM in Detroit, the Super Bowl champion is very active in helping Detroit and Pontiac youth through the NFL Alumni’s Detroit chapter as well as his charity, the Lomas Brown Foundation.
Detroit NFL Alumni Association president and former Detroit Lions safety Ron Rice Jr. felt Brown was a good fit to receive the organization’s Outstanding Service award based on what he has done on the field and off the field.

No doubt, it is football for which Brown is most known.

That is being reinforced with the publication of a new book Brown wrote with Mike Isenberg called: “If These Walls Could Talk. Detroit Lions: Stories from the Detroit Lions Sideline, Locker Room, and Press Box.”
The book focuses on 20 years of behind-the-scenes stories of Lions players, coaches and more.
