CLEVELAND - Last week’s NFL Draft is still on the minds of football fans, but Wednesday, nearly a dozen Cleveland Browns players were more focused on brightening the lives of sick children.
The players gave pointers to the children at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital.
Quarterback Colt McCoy joined teammates for Wednesday’s special lesson, a lesson on having fun. The kids were able to run, jump, and play to the best of their ability, getting one on one pointers from the pros at the hospital’s Hometown Huddle Playground.
Speculation about McCoy’s future with the Browns has run rampant after the team drafted quarterback Brandon Weeden in the first round of last week’s draft. But on this day, McCoy was focused solely on giving Cleveland Clinic workers a break and giving the kids a chance to forget why they were at the hospital.
The Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital sees more than 500,000 pediatric visits each year and provides hospital care for an average of 218 children per day.
