Thanks again to Martin Media for this excellent production, no doubt one that will stick around for a long time.
PAUL E. BROWN speaking....
Let me say to you that I’m PROUD of..to come from here
We tried to be the best in everything
In fact we played one season without punting
Frankly if you want respect and dignity…EARN IT
I had the opportunity to coach at MASSILLON
If you ever wonder where that 40 started from I used to have clinics
And I’d talk about measuring guys in the 40 yard sprint
I figured that’s about as far as you had to run to cover a punt or a kickoff
For no other reason and ya know, it sort of stuck
You’re SPECIAL if you’re from MASSILLON you’re SPECIAL if you are from there.
The people that took me out there today thought I’d hadn’t seen it in many years,
But they were wrong, I come back every year
It is a GREAT honor of having my name at the stadium
It was one of the happiest periods of my life really, THIS IS MY HOME
