Anthony Brown Jr.

Master's in Prevention Science


Brown earned his bachelor’s degree at Boston College prior to joining Oregon.

He is currently pursuing a Master’s of Education in Prevention Science.


Joining Oregon last Spring, Brown was robbed of the opportunity to compete for the starting QB job due to the pandemic. He served as the backup throughout the season and didn’t see the field until the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Brown could have transferred following the season but decided to return and compete for the starting position. He has since won his teammates over with his poise, leadership, and maturity, which culminated in Brown winning the job during fall camp.

Furthermore, Brown has fought through tremendous hardship to get to where he is today. He started for three years at Boston College and battled through torn ACLs in both knees. Returning from multiple surgeries and playing the best football of his career, Brown is the true leader for the Ducks this season.


While pursuing his master’s degree, Brown intends to use the research he compiled from his New Jersey community and implement it to give children the resources that he and his peers did not have growing up. He hopes to stress the importance of education to underprivileged kids, hoping that they have a better future than their predecessors.


In his three years at Boston College, Brown threw for 4,728 yards and 40 touchdowns over 28 games.

In his first season with the Ducks last year, Brown threw two touchdowns to help Oregon win the Pac-12 Championship Game.

He has since been named the starter for this season and has led Oregon to a 4-0 start. Following an upset win over Ohio State, Brown was named the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback of the Week. Through the first four games of the season, he has thrown for 765 yards and six touchdowns, while also throwing 138 consecutive passes without an interception.
