After Browns staff members volunteered for CMSD-related equipment and materials in the morning, Tuesday afternoon, the organization broke ground at the new football field that will be at John Marshall High School.
Cleveland School’s CEO Eric Gordon thanked the Browns for donating a new athletic field (of synthetic turf) and a scoreboard to John Marshall. The groundbreaking at Marshall completes the team’s commitment to providing five new fields to the district, as announced in May 2016.
In addition, after Tuesday’s OTA sessions in Berea, 21 members of the Browns’ rookie class, including first overall pick Myles Garrett, took part in the groundbreaking. Located on W. 140th in Cleveland, Marshall is the closest Cleveland high school to the headquarters in Berea, which made it a quick trip.
The school is also tearing down its old bleachers and putting in new metal stands, and at some point in the future, a new track is expected to go around the field.
