Mike Brown gets a lot of grief for being tight with his money, and deservedly so. We've all heard the stories on how Brown has skimped on amenities from former players and visiting free agents. But when he opens up the purses to do a good thing for the community, he deserves credit. This is the case now.
Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson reports today that the Bengals have supplied a local 7 on 7 high school all-star squad traveling to Berea, Ohio for a tournament a full compliment of equipment and Bengals gear. Head coach Dale Sturgill reports receiving boxes of polo shirts, t-shirts, shorts and hats from the Bengals organization courtesy the equipment managers and pro shop. "We're going to look good," Sturgill exclaimed.
The team was chosen from among those participating in the NFL's High School Player Development Camps held in Cincinnati. The top 12 players, most of whom have interest from Division I schools, will travel up to Browns training camp to participate in the tournament along with 11 other teams. Thanks to Mike Brown and the Bengals, they'll be representing the Queen City in style.Tags: Cincinnati, Cincinnati Bengals, Football, Mike Brown, NFL
