Father and son business partners Mike Brown and Matt Brown have made a generous major gift to the Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) football program.

Mike Brown, SWOSU class of 1978, was a two-sport athlete for the Bulldogs, playing both football and baseball while a student at SWOSU. Mike was inducted to the SWOSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2019. He is a past president of the SWOSU Athletic Association Board of Directors. Mike has served as mayor of Weatherford since 2004. He is a broker with American Insurance Group in Weatherford where he lives with his wife, Debbie.

Mike and Debbie’s son, Matt, is a 2008 SWOSU alumnus. Like his father, Matt played football for the Bulldogs. Matt lives in Norman with his wife, Kira, and their three daughters. Matt is a Norman firefighter as well as an agent with American Insurance Group with his father.

“We are so very grateful to Mike Brown and Matt Brown for their generous, ongoing support of SWOSU football,” SWOSU Head Football Coach Josh Kirkland said. “The Brown family truly represents an enduring SWOSU athletic legacy.”
