The Cleveland Browns will award two CMSD an Athletic Trainer Grant to John Hay and James Ford Rhodes High Schools.
The Browns announced on Thursday that Cleveland Metropolitan School District's John Hay High School and James Ford Rhodes High School will receive funding to support new certified athletic trainers (ATC) through the NFL Foundation's Athletic Trainer Grant.
Through a collaboration with University Hospitals, and in partnership with CMSD, John Hay and James Ford Rhodes High Schools were able to add ATC David Silverstein and Stacey Gainer to its staff, respectively.
Gainer and Silverstein will help provide year-round quality medical care on and off the field to the more than 18 sports programs and 600 youth competing for the two high schools, which previously did not have the resources to retain ATC.
The Browns are committed to assisting the development, safety and growth of youth football throughout Northeast Ohio with year-round programming for players, coaches, officials and parents.
