Steelers.com recently published a story on Curtis Brown and his early life story. Go read it if you haven't already and find yourself a new favorite Longhorn.
On this day, Curtis Brown is sitting in the only quiet spot in the Steelers training room, and maybe for the first time in his young life he is letting down his guard and opening up. But Brown isn’t looking for sympathy. He doesn’t want your pity. His tears already have been shed. He has emotional and psychological scars, yes, but those wounds have healed, and some of the other things … well, those were handled with an acceptance derived from his own naïve belief that life was just supposed to be like that.
Curtis Brown doesn’t have a why-me bone in his body.
