Cleveland Browns First and Ten
While visiting a different community each week for the Cleveland Browns High School Game of the Week, we come across an overwhelming amount of selfless individuals who help make high school football so special in their respected communities. This week we met Brian Novak. Novak, who volunteers every Friday night for the Strongsville Mustangs, can be found handing out programs and keeping spirits high. Novak also coaches his daughter's softball team, helps out at Strongsville cross country meets and runs in the St. Josephs Soul Run every year to support cancer research. Way to go Brian, keep up the great work!
