The Religious Affiliation of
Professional Football Player, Actor
Jim Brown was a professional football player who became a professional actor in Hollywood. He was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Lacrosse Hall of Fame, making him one of the few athletes in more than one hall of fame.
Jim Brown grew up in a devout Baptist home. His mother was insistent that the family attend church every Sunday. As a boy he attended a Baptist church with his family. As an adult, he does not appear to have been active in the faith.
