Browns Fan, Who Was "Let Down" By Team, Remembered

Posted: Updated:
MANSFIELD, Ohio -

A lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns had one final wish in his obituary. He requested that six Browns players serve as pallbearers at his funeral – so his team can let him down one last time.

At the memorial service for Scott Entsminger Tuesday, the crowd looked more like a team meeting instead of a funeral.

Family and friends gathered to remember one of the biggest Browns fans in history.

Entsminger rooted for the Browns from the day he was born. He wrote songs about the team, sent letters to the team owners, offering advice on how to run the team, and went to nearly every home game since 1999.

Entsminger died on July 4 after a bout with pancreatic and esophageal cancer. But his love for the Browns never died.

His wish of having the football players serve as pallbearers did not come true Tuesday. The team instead gave him a jersey.
