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."
Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert said Monday that the team contacted Entsminger's widow, Pat, and found out that his favourite player was Hall of Famer Lou Groza. The team will present a Groza No. 76 jersey with Entsminger's name on the back to the family Tuesday
Entsminger's obituary also said he "wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team."
