Year Inducted: 1999

A native of Greenburg, Pennsylvania, Mike Geroux was a standout wide receiver for the Bears from 1987-1990. At only 5-11, not exactly an ideal height for a receiver, Geroux stood tall out on the field. He left the Bears in 1990, but not before leaving his mark in the Brown record book. During his freshman season, the Bears finished with a record of 7-3, their highest win total in 10 years. In limited time as a freshman, he caught nine balls for 128 yards. As a sophomore, Mike was selected to the Second Team All-Ivy League, after finishing the season with 28 catches for a team high 448 yards. He had the best game of his year against Princeton, with 119 yards on five catches. Geroux really came on as a junior, catching 28 passes for 376 yards, even though he missed the last two games of the season with an injury. He was a First Team All-Ivy selection in 1989. Mike's senior year was his best. In fact, many would say it was one of the best single seasons in Brown's history to date. He finished with 57 receptions, second best in Brown history at the time, and 659 yards, sixth best in Brown history. Those numbers were good enough to make him a First Team All-Ivy performer for the second straight year. On the final possession of the year in 1990, Geroux became the all-time leading receiver with 109 catches. His 1,483 receiving yards was also a Brown record when he left College Hill. He is currently the Brown record holder for receptions in a game, 14 (tied with Bob Farnham), fourth in career receptions, and fourth in career receiving yards. The winner of the Tuss McLaughry Trophy, Geroux now lives in San Francisco with his wife, Sandra Wong Geroux, where he is employed as an investment banker for Chase Securities.
