The Browns visited University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center patients during its weekly First and Ten Tuesday community engagement. Browns players interacted with and presented gifts to the patients to show support and brighten spirits, as well as express appreciation for UH’s medical staff for their daily contributions.
With each patient that Browns running back Nick Chubb, wide receiver Damion Ratley and linebacker Joe Schobert visited at the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center last Wednesday, the smiles only seemed to get bigger and wider.
Just another example of how it's about more than football around these parts.
The three went from room to room visiting patients of all ages, taking pictures, signing memorabilia for them and taking a few moments to chat.
One of, if not the most, inspiring parts of the day was witnessing one of the patients ring the bell signifying the end of her treatment.
Another field up and running
Another player who gave back to the Northeast Ohio area recently was defensive lineman Myles Garrett, who attended the most recent Cleveland Browns High School Game of the Week featuring Akron's Ellet Orangemen and the Lutheran East Falcons.
Garrett was there to not only take in the game, but to also help celebrate the ninth multi-sport field installation at the George E. Auten Athletic Complex. It represents yet another field funded by Dee and Jimmy Haslam to continue their commitment toward education and youth football.
The home team would end up picking up the win on their new field as the Orangemen topped the Falcons 27-20.
Myles Garrett, the poet
Sticking with Garrett, look out for the big guy on an upcoming episode of E:60.
The show recently released a tease featuring one element of his personal life that you might not expect out of him.
'The Scottish Hammer' Builds on his Strong Reputation
Already a fan favorite in just a short amount of time here in Cleveland, punter Jamie Gillan showed the league why the Browns held onto him after training camp as he was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month.
In a game where there wasn't too much to highlight for the Browns against the 49ers, Gillan was certainly one of them, blasting seven punts for an average of 56.7 yards and a long of 71. One of his punts in the first quarter even got the #ForTheBrand bump by Twitter's most popular former NFL punter.
Finally, be sure to check out the latest episode of Club 46 featuring former Browns defensive tackle Jerry Sherk. He sits down with Jim Donovan, and the two discuss Jerry's past as a collegiate wrestler, the hobby he picked up upon retiring, and his efforts to keep the Browns in Cleveland.
