Off-the-field news can often be mostly about the negatives despite all the great things players due for their communities. The Cleveland Browns have seen Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward, Kareem Hunt and others focus on giving back to Northeast Ohio for years now.
We now get to celebrate OL Wyatt Teller who is the team’s nominee for the Salute to Service award presented by USAA. Teller’s father, Rick Teller, is a retired Army Reserve Major. Last year, Teller supported the Green Beret Foundation and was a part of surprising a servicewoman with a $50,000 grand prize.
The star offensive guard says it is easy to support the military and veterans because “these people are the ones who are putting their lives on the line for us,” Teller said, “and for what our society believes is right.”
