CLEVELAND — What if scripting 15 plays for one the Browns preseason games could become a reality? Well thanks to head coach Kevin Stefanski and legendary Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar, fans could participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It’s all part of the “All in Challenge” that so far has included more than 400 celebrities and athletes that have helped raise more than $45 million for six different organizations that help those struggling to put food on the table during the pandemic.

Kosar and Stefanski are raising funds by offering fans experiences that are put up for auction, raffle or both.

Stefanski is offering the opportunity for winners to help him and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt script 15 plays for one of the preseason games.

"Giving back is a core component of who we are as an organization," Stefanski said in a news release. "With the global pandemic, it's really important we step up when there are others in need. Just look around at the frontline workers, the health care workers, they're stepping up right now, they're working tirelessly, they're working courageously and it's really inspired our organization to join the All In Challenge."

The winner will also be invited to the team dinner and team meeting the night before the game. On game day, they’ll receive pre-game sideline passes, run through tunnel with the team before the game starts and be part of the coin toss. On top of all that, winners will get autographed memorabilia and team-issued Nike gear.

The package is being offered in two different ways. One will be up for auction and another will be available through a sweepstakes. The auction winner will be able to bring a guest along for the experience.

Meanwhile, Kosar is offering a lucky winner and three guests the opportunity to watch a game alongside him and local legend and celebrity Chef Michael Symon in a private suite at FirstEnergy Stadium for a regular season game. Symon will even cook a meal for the group.
