The Cleveland Browns have had a customized jersey made for the family of a fan who asked for six players to serve as pallbearers at his funeral.
Browns public relations director Zak Gilbert told ESPN.com that as soon as the Browns learned of Scott E. Entsminger’s death they contacted his widow, Pat, to express their condolences.
A representative from the Browns’ front office will personally deliver it to Pat Entsminger at her husband’s memorial service Tuesday afternoon.
Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, Ohio, died on July 4 at his home. In his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, Entsminger, a lifelong Browns fan, requested “six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.”
