Also in the 2014 Brown broke the 41 year old 400 hurdles school record lowering it from 50.50 sec to 49.64 sec, which is the second best performance in the history of the MW conference.
In 2014 Abdel Wahab coached Brown to the semifinal of the US national indoor championship in the 60m hurdles, 4th place at the US national outdoor championship in the 400 hurdles and a first place and a Gold medal for the United States at the 2014 under-23 NACAC meet in Canada in the 400m hurdles.
