TAMPA, Fla. - A friend of our day planner spotted Cleveland Browns' Josh Cribbs at the Tampa International Airport and called him a "class act."
Rachiel Kopack was waiting to hop aboard a flight when she saw Cribbs talking with the Kent State University softball team -- who was also in Tampa to catch the same plane.
"Moments later, the coach approaches a gentleman and woman sitting behind me and I overhear him say that he wants to shake this guy's hand and thank him for his overwhelming generosity towards their program. Before we know it, this guy is swarmed and surrounded by the entire softball team."
So for the next few minutes before boarding the plane, Kopack snapped a few photos and watched him sign autographs. She said he even engaged in conversation with everyone who approached him, "and not at all in an obligatory way."
Kopack also described Cribbs as a "down to Earth guy."
