Timothy Brown

Thomas Allen Brown (born May 24, 1937), known also as Timothy Brown and Timmy Brown, is a former professional American football player and actor. Brown was raised in Knightstown, Indiana. Brown is a 1955 graduate of Morton Memorial High School at the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Children's Home. Brown played college football at Ball State University. As a pro (when he was known mainly as "Timmy" Brown), he played only a single game with the Green Bay Packers, eight seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and one season with the Baltimore Colts of the National Football League (NFL). His final game was Super Bowl III with the Colts. Brown went to the Pro Bowl in 1962, 1963, and 1965. He is the only player in Philadelphia history to return a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown, and the only Eagle (and the first of nine NFL players ever) to return two kickoffs, 90- and 93-yarders, for touchdowns in the same game. Brown's acting career began while he was still an active player, with a guest appearance on the Season 3 premiere of The Wild Wild West as Clint Cartwheel in the episode titled "The Night of the Bubbling Death", which originally aired on September 8, 1967.
