First and Ten Highlights


Name: Major Everett

Hometown: New Hebron, MS

How he gives back:

Major Everett, a former member of the Cleveland Browns hosted nearly 200-area youth ages (6-14) at his football camp at the end of June. To #give10 and help his community, Major teamed up with another Browns alum Glenn Young and Jeff Bryant (Seahawks alum) to put on the event. Major said He feels that it's his civic duty to give back to the same community that nurtured him.

The goal of the camp was to give kids a safe place to play and learn. Lessons that the football greats passed on to the future stars were the rewards of hard work, team unity and sportsmanship. The coaches also stressed the importance of being active for at least 60 minutes a day in addition to correct hydration and stretching techniques. Rotating through stations on the field, campers learned the fundamentals such as speed/coordination, passing, offensive and defensive techniques and more. Campers also learned about the tools needed to be successful off of the field including the importance of self-discipline, quality leadership and confidence-building. They really wanted the kids to know that they could reach their dreams by working hard, being disciplined and hitting the books. Not only were the NFL alumni present as positive role models, but Major was able to rally others in the community to #give10 as well by assisting with registration, coaching and more. That is fantastic Major! We love to see our Browns give back to the youth, and you did so in a very big way.

Name: Randall Telfer

Hometown: Rancho Cucamonga, CA

How he gives back:

Cleveland Browns rookie Randall Telfer has always been committed to volunteering. The USC alumnus said that he loves children so he tries to work with the future generation as much as possible. To #give10 and help his community, Telfer visited children currently undergoing treatment. The rookie's commitment to children speaks volumes. When he's not inspiring the youth of tomorrow, Randall makes it a priority to visit with the elderly. Keep it up, Randall! #give10


Name: Special Olympics Ohio

Hometown: Cleveland, OH

How they give back:

Volunteers in the area were able to #give10 and help their community at the Special Olympics Ohio Summer Games. The Special Olympics Ohio team believe that their volunteers are the backbone of the organization and the event wouldn't have been a success without the volunteers involved. Each year they have more than 12,000 people who donate their time by helping with registration, coaching, officiating and more. The three day-long event included many events for the athletes to participate in. Volunteers of all ages sported their orange #give10 wristbands while packing lunches for the athletes. It was a fantastic effort by all. Thanks for sharing!


Name: John Ozmore

Hometown: Williamsburg, VA

How he gives back:

John loves the Browns and he loves to give back. John signed up to #give10 in order to help his community become a better place and interact with those who live in it. Lately John has been getting involved with the local Browns Backers clubs to fundraise and support others in the community. The group held a yard sale in which proceeds were donated to the local SPCA. Other items were donated to the Salvation Army. Way to go Dawg Pound! It sounds like both the Dawgs and the dogs in your community benefited from your decision to #give10.
