Pastor RV Brown inspires Chiefland football team

-A A +A



The Chiefland Indians football team had their stomachs and spirits filled at their weekly Champion’s Dinner last Thursday. The team was treated to dinner provided by the Chiefland Quarterback Club. 

Following the meal, the team and their coaches listened to an inspirational talk from Pastor RV Brown. The Chiefland Quarterback Club asked Brown, an ordained minister from Tampa and former football standout from South Carolina State University, to provide the team with his unique and inspirational message.

Brown explained how he had been the 16th of a 17-child family growing up in rural South Carolina. He told them he wanted to play football in college so much he built his 160-pound frame up to 210 pounds and waited in front of the football coaches’ door each day until he was given a tryout and a scholarship.

Pastor Brown impressed on the boys good nutrition and staying tobacco and drug free. He caused quite a stir in the room when he flexed massive 24 inch biceps and loudly said, “This is collard greens and corn bread boys, it’s not steroids!”
