Default Browns fan took his lifelong fandom beyond the grave



ESPN.com news services - July 9, 2013

A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan has gone to his final rest, but not before making one last request from the team.

Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, Ohio, died on July 4. Entsminger, a Columbus native, was a musician and a Browns season-ticket holder who wrote a song for the team each year and sent it in, along with his advice on how to run the team.

According to his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, Entsminger also "respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time."

The family also has requested that "everyone" wear their Browns clothing to Entsminger's funeral Tuesday.

Browns public relations director Zak Gilbert told ESPN.com that as soon as the Browns learned of Entsminger's death they contacted his widow, Pat, to express their condolences.

"She told us that Scott's favorite player was Lou Groza, so we had a 76 jersey customized with Scott's last name," Gilbert said.

A representative from the Browns' front office will personally deliver it to Pat Entsminger at her husband's memorial service Tuesday afternoon.
