The Cleveland Browns are hoping linebacker Paul Kruger will provide leadership to a young, rebuilding team. Judging by what he's doing in his hometown, Kruger will deliver.
Long before signing a five-year, $40 million contract with Cleveland, Kruger established his foundation to assist youth. And now he's staging a Leadership Academy Day on June 14 at Timpanogos High School in Orem, where he played quarterback on his way to becoming a star defensive lineman for the University of Utah and a Super Bowl champion with the Baltimore Ravens.
The event, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., is free to male youth of ages 13-18 (pre-registration is required at krugercare.org). Kruger's program will include mentoring sessions, followed by team-building activities, skill challenges and his keynote address, which is open to the participants' families.
