Heath Houser, a loyal Browns fan through and through, is a teen who has pledged to #give10 and help his community. Heath has supported the team all of his life and will continue to do so in any way that he can. He took the challenge to #give10 and went above and beyond by contributing 15 hours to a special project in his hometown. He volunteered his time over one weekend to help restore a portion of the local athletic facility. With summer games quickly approaching, Heath managed to paint the inside of the baseball training grounds for youth in his community. Wow, Good job Heath. The space looks great with the fresh coat of paint! I'm sure everyone appreciated your time and effort.

Name:Sam Beall

Hometown:Massillon, OH

What they do to give back: Sam is a loyal Browns fan and former sergeant in the Army from Northeast Ohio. While deployed and serving our country, he felt that he could do even more, so he had his mom send care packages for the native Iraqi children. He became a hero to those kids just like Bernie Kosar was for him. Back in the U.S. Sam gave speeches to children in his own community telling them how in other countries kids, just like them, have much different lives. In 2012, Sam was named one of the Top 15 Most Influential Veteran's in 2012. Sam and his family have recently relocated back to Northeast Ohio and he is looking for fun and exciting ways to be active, and #give10 back to his community. What an amazing story. Sam, thank you so much for your service and going above and beyond to help your local community.
