Shining Lights: The Renegades Football Story

Phil Cullum founded the Renegades Football program in 1986 to keep kids off the streets. The program provides players, ages eight to 14, with a safe zone and support to achieve their goals on and off the field.

On December 5, 2015, the Renegades battled under the lights at the newly-renovated Dwayne Browder Field in Cleveland. This was the first night game played at home in Renegades Football history.


The field, located on the grounds of the old East Tech High School, was re-built in the fall of 2015 in a collaborative effort of the City of Cleveland, Cleveland Browns, FirstEnergy and the Burten Bell Carr Community Development Corporation.


The lights were donated by The Illuminating Company, a FirstEnergy utility. In November, about 20 Illuminating Company employees donated their time to install the four light poles. They worked for about 10 hours to complete the job.


Now, the field can now be used for night games, which is very exciting for the players.


This is the Renegades Football story.

North Ridgeville RB and Ohio State commit Demario McCall (Former Garden Valley Falcon) reflects on 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl experience

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — North Ridgeville senior running back and Ohio State football commit Demario McCall fulfilled a dream on Saturday when he played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome.

McCall's East team lost to the West, 37-9. But from an individual point of view, McCall had a few nice plays, including a couple of big runs to set up the East's only touchdown.

"Once I got the feel of it, they gave me the ball a couple more times," McCall said. "Once I get going, there's no stopping me."

McCall committed to Ohio State on March 28 and received his Army All-American jersey on Sept. 24. He admitted when he received his jersey that he was surprised that he was invited to the game and it hit him early on Saturday when he stepped on the field at the Alamodome.

"I never knew that I'd be playing in the game," McCall said. "I always watched the game on TV and (thought), 'Wow. Those guys have got to be good. I wish I could be there one day.' I made my dream come true."

He entered the game ranked No. 47 overall among college prospects according to 247Sports.com, and is Ohio's No. 3 prospect and the No. 2 all-purpose back in the country.

Mayor Frank Jackson Speaks At Dwayne Browder Field

September 9, 2015 at 5:00 p.m., Mayor Frank G. Jackson, Cleveland Browns President Alec Scheiner, community representatives and business leaders gathered at 2511 E 46th Street to celebrate renovations to Dwayne Browder Field. The $930,000 project replaced the natural grass turf with synthetic turf thereby increasing the availability and playing status of the field. The renovation was a collaborative effort between the City of Cleveland, who funded the balance from General Obligation Bonds; Burten Bell Carr Community Development Corporation; and, the Cleveland Browns, who provided a $200,000 grant through the NFL Foundation Grassroots Program.


In 2013, the Lonnie Burten Recreation Field was renamed the Dwayne Browder Field to honor longtime Cleveland Muni Football League coach and community leader, Dwayne Browder. The field remains an important asset to Cleveland’s Central neighborhood, serving the Cleveland Muni League’s Phil Cullum Renegades and the East Technical High School Scarabs. The renovated field will also benefit neighborhood residents who utilize the field for exercise and other neighborhood programs.
