Former Bishop Amat star Ralph Brown is hoping for a Super ending on Sunday.
When Ralph Brown was calling the San Gabriel Valley his stomping grounds in the mid 1990s, he was a shifty running back on Bishop Amat High School’s last CIF-Southern Section divisional championship team.
The Hacienda Heights native is still shifty, but now to opposing quarterbacks. Brown, who would later star in the defensive secondary at Nebraska, is again wearing red these days, playing in the defensive backfield for the Arizona Cardinals, who have set franchise history by winning two playoff games.
Brown has done his part, grabbing an interception in each of the team’s wins – a 30-24 victory over Atlanta on Jan. 3 and a 33-13 romp over Carolina this past Saturday.
The nine-year NFL veteran now will go for a Super ending when the Cardinals host Philadelphia in Sunday’s NFC championship game, with the winner advancing to the Super Bowl in Tampa, Fla. on Feb. 1.
Good luck from the SGV, Ralph!
