Cleveland • The Browns are giving a jersey to the family of a fan who asked for six players to serve as pallbearers at his funeral.

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 favorite player was Hall of Famer Lou Groza. The team presented 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."
