Brown to be honored in W. Va.
The City Council of Huntington, W. Va. voted on Monday to name a street in honor of longtime resident and beloved Patriot Troy Brown.
A section of 16th Street Road will be renamed Troy Brown way.
Though Brown was raised in South Carolina, he became a star at Marshall and has remained in West Virginia. He is active in several Huntington community organizations and will once again hold his football camp at Marshall in April.

Belichick SB XLII headset up for auction
The NFL today opened a 10-day auction for the headset Pats' coach Bill Belichick wore on the sidelines last season, including for Super Bowl XLII. New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin's headset is also available.
Though they are the headsets both coaches wore throughout the season, the Motorola "batwing" logo was replaced on one side by the SB XLII logo for the game nearly two weeks ago.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit NFL Charities. Other items available on the nflauction.nfl.com site include the Pro Bowl number 21 jerseys worn by Washington Redskins Chris Cooley, Chris Samuels and Ethan Albright in last weekend's game.
