(HERO Sports) - Charleston Southern redshirt freshman wide receiver Kameron Brown was named to the 2016 HERO Sports FCS Honorable Mention All-Freshman team on Wednesday morning. The selection comes as HERO Sports unveils its All-Freshman, All-Sophomore, and All-America teams in the final week of 2016.
Brown was one of six wide receivers selected for the FCS All-Freshman team and one of seven Big South honorees. The All-Freshman recognition comes to the Beech Island, S.C. native after leading the Big South in yards per catch in the 2016 season.
Brown added an extra dimension to CSU's offense at wide receiver with big play potential and timely receptions highlighting his game. The redshirt freshman led the Big South and currently sits fifth in the NCAA in yards per reception (20.0)
He was named Big South Freshman of the Week for his clutch three catch, 58 yard game in the Bucs' near upset of five-time defending FCS national champion North Dakota State in the season opener. He added a season-high 80 yards and a touchdown on the road in CSU's September 10 matchup at Florida State.
Brown added five catches, 67-yards, and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' October 29 win over Bucknell, and added touchdown catches in conference play against Liberty, Kennesaw State, and Monmouth.
