ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — Cleveland Browns All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett spent his off day Tuesday with around 75 members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio (BGCNEO) at an event in Rocky River.
Garrett hung out with members of the Gallagher and Brookside clubs on Cleveland's west side at Taco Bell on Center Ridge Road. Garrett donated his spokesperson fee to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio as part of Taco Bell's $2 million campaign for BGCNEO.
"I’m fortunate enough to have a platform that allows me to positively impact the next generation, and to support the communities that have supported me for the past five years," Garrett said in a statement prior to the event. "It is my goal to create opportunities for underserved communities and to spread as much love across the world as possible. It is always special to be able to uplift the city of Cleveland."
Each youth had an opportunity to talk to the Browns star, get autographs and pictures, win some Browns prizes, and enjoy one of Taco Bell’s new Browns Feast Boxes.
Garrett, who is now in his sixth season in the NFL, recently became the Browns' all-time leader in sacks. He has earned first-team All-Pro honors in each of the past two seasons, as well as three career Pro Bowl selections.
