75 Days to Gator Football

75 – Lomas Brown, T (1981-84)

Lomas Brown, Jr. of Miami, FL, is widely regarded as the best offensive lineman in UF history, best athletes in Florida high school history and among the best Gators at any position of all-time. Brown was a member of the Gator offensive line under Charley Pell and Galen Hall in the early 80’s that was affectionately referred to as “The Great Wall of Florida”. Joining him on the Great Wall of Florida were Phil Bromley, Billy Hinson, Crawford Ker and Jeff Zimmerman. With Kerwin Bell at QB and Neal Anderson and John L. Williams in the backfield, the 1984 Gators went 9-1-1 in what could have been our first SEC Championship. Years later, the University of Florida Athletic Association added Lomas Brown to the annals of the Hall of Fame as a Gator Great.
