Bill Brown played on Ward Melville's first Suffolk County and Long Island championship team. He helped push the team to a new level and decades of dominance. Former Ward Melville head coach Joe Cuozzo said Brown was a fantastic finisher and ran a pretty good fast break.

"He was usually on the scoring end," Cuozzo recalls. "He was one of the better finishers."

Brown scored 47 goals and added 54 assists during his career, according to Ward Melville stat guru Will Gray. He was an All-American in high school and won the Ray Enners Award in 1975 as Suffolk County's most outstanding lacrosse player.

Current Ward Melville head coach Mike Hoppey played with Brown for one season and said he went to West Point for a short time before transferring to Rutgers University.
