Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas Texas saw the birth of the legend. Mr. Raider as how Tim Brown was also known did not step foot on the grid iron until his sophomore year in high school. At that time his mother did not allow him to play this sport instead Brown was a member of the school band playing percussion. Brown went on to not only becoming an icon for Woodrow Wilson High but also playing college level football at Notre Dame and then playing for 17 years in the National Football League of which 16 of those he played for the Oakland Raiders and only one as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.
