Brian Duncan spent nearly all of his football career in Texas.
Born in Olney, the running back played for Graham High School and then Southern Methodist.
And Duncan finished his three-year NFL career with the Houston Oilers in 1978.
But in between, he spent two years with the Browns.
The Browns signed Duncan as an undrafted rookie in 1976 and he played with them through the following year before going to the AFC Central-rival Oilers.
He was a backup on offense for the Browns and also served as a kickoff returner, averaging 24.2 yards per attempt in 1976.
Duncan made the most of the seven passes he caught in his Cleveland career, as two of them went for touchdowns. In fact, the only reception he had in 1977 was for a score.
