Wilde Lake alum Zach Brown earns 'Gruden Grinder' award for Titans

Last night, the

Tennessee Titans

eliminated the

New York Jets

from playoff contention with a 14-10 victory on Monday Night Football.

One of the key players for the Titans on defense Monday night was Wilde Lake alum

Zach Brown

, a rookie linebacker who was graduated from the Howard County school in 2007 and was selected by Tennessee in the second round of this year's

NFL draft


The former three-sport athlete for the Wildecats had seven tackles and two sacks in the victory, but his biggest play was a fumble recovery in the final minute, securing the win for the host Titans.
