Underrated is a term that comes up a lot to describe sporting athletes, particularly in football.

Luke Brown

Brown is one of those defenders that goes unknown, but plays his role to perfection. Heck, most footy fans probably wouldn’t recognised him if they saw him down the street.

His no nonsense attitude as a defender is second to none and even though it doesn’t always look pretty, Brown just gets the job done.
