Kosar pledges $100,000 to Akron schools

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar has pledged $100,000 over five years to Akron public schools for scholarships.
Kosar, who announced the pledge Tuesday night, said the money would pay for eight $2,500 scholarships annually.
Two years ago Kosar (pictured, above) pledged the same amount to schools in Cleveland and the Cleveland Roman Catholic Diocese.
Kosar, speaking at the National Football Foundation banquet, turned aside talk that he would run for the U.S. Senate in Ohio.
With four children under age 11, "It's probably not in my near-term," Kosar said.
