The African American Football Coaches Association (AAFCA) has spearheaded a number of initiatives to advance equality, safety, and equity in the African American community. The Browns are proud to partner and highlight the Build the Bridge program, of the AAFCA along with Coach Mac Stephens, Kahari Hicks, and Damion Creel. Build the Bridge strives to create a coalition of coaches, players, parents, administration and community members to foster the success of student-athletes through social-emotional, educational, and athletic advancement. The program creates opportunities for all team members to build relationships and mutual respect between diverse communities, regardless of their race, class or creed. #BeTheSolution


The Cleveland Browns High School Game of the Week (HSGOTW) returns this fall for the eleventh consecutive year, with Ohio Cat as the program's presenting partner and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) and Raising Cane's as the program's associate partners. Since the program began, nearly 8 million votes have been submitted across ClevelandBrowns.com and the Browns official Twitter account for weekly match-ups!


Each week, four panelists nominate a game for the HSGOTW poll, where fans then vote to determine which match-up will be featured. The winning match-up receives extended game coverage across the Browns website and social media channels. This year's panelists are Matt Fontana, Jason Gibbs, Andrew Gribble and Chomps.

The winning team from the selected Game of the Week – weeks 1-6 of the high school regular season – receives $3,000 for their high school football program. The winning coach and game MVP will be honored with custom Coach of the Week game ball and a Browns varsity letter for the MVP. At the conclusion of the season, the Browns announce the High School Coach of the Year, who will earn an additional $6,000 for their program.
