Legislators in Washington, D.C. recognized former longtime KRGV Sports Director Dave Brown.

Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz recognized Brown on the House floor Thursday.

“For over 40 years, Dave worked at KRGV where he brought the excitement of sports to our homes,” De La Cruz said. “His impact went far beyond sports. Dave's tireless advocacy for diabetes and organ donation awareness made a lasting impact on our lives."

Dave was recognized weeks after Channel 5 News’ organ donor registration drive event that was held in honor of him.
