|Brown to be inducted Friday|
Allen Brown of Lake St. John will be inducted into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Friday in Jackson.
The induction will take place at the Jackson Marriot at 7 p.m.

Brown helped lead Ole Miss to a 19-4-1 regular season mark from 1962-64, competing in two Sugar Bowls and a Bluebonnet Bowl.
He was an All-American in 1964 and all-Southeastern Conference in 1963 and in 1964. He played in the 1964 Blue-Gray Game and 1965 Chicago All-Star Game and Senior Bowl. In his sophomore and junior years at Natchez-Adams High, the Rebels won the South Big 8 championship.
Brown was recruited by Ole Miss, LSU, Alabama, Mississippi State, Tulane, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Arkansas.Brown played end and linebacker for the Rebels.
Ole Miss completed a perfect 10-0 season in 1962 with a 17-13 win over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. That team finished ranked third, behind Southern Cal and Wisconsin.
"That was quite a team," Brown said. "We didn't believe anybody could beat us. But that was the time of integration at Ole Miss, and that took away a lot of the attention."
The Rebels went 7-1-2 in 1963, falling to Steve Sloan and Alabama 12-7 in the Sugar Bowl. That team finished No. 7 in the nation.
Brown led the team in receiving that season, catching 16 passes for 221 yards, with most coming from Natchez High teammate Perry Lee Dunn.
Brown was co-captain of the 1964 Ole Miss team. Brown played in the 1965 Senior Bowl, catching two passes from Joe Namath. Brown was also selected for the 1965 Chicago All-Star Game, but an injury forced him to miss the game.
Brown's injury kept him playing for Vince Lombardi and Green Bay his rookie year of 1965.
Brown, who was a third-round draft pick of the Packers as the 38th player taken, was also drafted in the third round by the San Diego Chargers of newly-organized American Football League.
The Browns have lived on Lake St. John for 15 years. Allen has served on the Lake St. John Advisory Board.
