Things are going pretty well for former Temple standout Tim Brown.

A member of the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League, Brown was most recently named the CFL Special Teams Player of the Week.

In the Lions’ 26-22 win over the Calgary Stampeders, Brown returned a first quarter kickoff for a 97-yard touchdown. All told, Brown returned four kickoffs for 140 yards and nine punts for 72 yards. Brown finished the game with 212 all-purpose yards.

On the season, which is headed into week nine, Brown ranks fifth in the CFL with 669 combined return yards.
