Man requests Browns pallbearers so team can ‘let him down one more time’

If you’re a Cleveland Browns fan, you’re used to disappointment, heartache and torture.

Well, one Ohio-native, who died at the age of 55, had a final request to express his fanhood in a very unique way.

The Columbus Dispatch wrote Scott Entsminger’s obituary over the weekend and detailed his love for music, family and the Browns.

Entsminger, a lifelong fan and season-ticket holder, would send the team a song every year giving his advice for moves that the franchise should make. His love for the team burned so bright that he wanted his pallbearers to be Browns. Why, you ask?

“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time,” his obituary read.

We here at Laces Out send our sincere condolences to the Entsminger family. The Dawg Pound, surely, will miss his love for the team.
