The biography of retired USMNT soccer player George Brown who served as president of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
George Brown, half of one of only a few father-and-son combinations in the National Soccer Hall of Fame, starred for a decade in pro teams in and near New York. In addition to appearing in a World Cup qualifier against Mexico in 1957, he was a member of the United States team that won the bronze medal at the 1959 Pan-American Games. Brown’s era wasn’t known for the full schedule we see today. He took advantages of his limited opportunity to wear the USA shirt in a decade where the National Team rarely played. He later served as president of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, joining the Hall as a player in 1995.
