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.
Cleveland Muny Alumni Carlton Bragg Selects The University of Kansas
Cleveland Muny Football alumni (E. 88th Street Browns) and Villa Angela-St. Joseph boys basketball senior Carlton Bragg announced on Thursday he will play his college basketball at Kansas.
Bragg, a five-star recruit and the No. 18 prospect on ESPN.com in the Class of 2015, chose the Jayhawks over Illinois and Kentucky.
Bragg is the first recruit in the Kansas recruiting class and the third player on his team to commit to a Division I school. Forward Dererk Pardon committed to Northwestern and guard Brian Parker will play at Marist.
At 6-foot-10, 232 pounds, the first thing that jumps out about Bragg as a player is his athleticism. He has great explosiveness and can impact the game at both ends of the floor.
He is averaging 20.4 points per game, shooting nearly 60 percent from the field and better than 80 percent from the line.
Bragg has shooting range all the way out to the 3-point line, but can also work in the post and get to the free throw line.
One of the biggest strengths of Bragg's game is his play around the rim on both ends of the floor, whether it is finishing on offense or blocking shots and being a rim protector.

Field Dedicated in Honor of Community Leader
CLEVELAND — Dozens turned out for a special dedication on the city’s east side Sunday morning.
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, along with other city leaders, dedicated the Lonnie Burten Recreation Field in honor of Dwayne Browder.
The field is home to Cleveland Muny Football League’s CMHA/Lonnie Burten Organization. Browder has served as the leader of the organization for 22 years.
Browder was also recognized Sunday for his leadership with the youth in local neighborhoods. He says the league helps fight a rising epidemic.
“We’re losing a battle with a lot of kids and teenagers today, and if someone doesn’t step up and help them, this thing can get even worse, and we’re not trying to let it get worse, we’re trying to get it better,” said Browder.
Brodwer says the league is one of a few in Ohio that does not charge children to play. He is hoping for some more financial support from the community.
