Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren told a Seattle radio station last week that Colt McCoy will be the team’s starting quarterback.

The news was not shocking, but such announcements are usually made by the head coach.

Holmgren said that with Colt at the helm, he expects the team to win more games before he is satisfied with the overall progress.

The Browns president also said the team went from being one of the oldest NFL teams to one of the youngest. Holmgren says that they lost 331 years by subtracting veterans for younger players.

Whetstone High School graduate Akwasi Owusu-Ansah was drafted last season in the 4th round of the NFL draft, 126th overall pick from small-college Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a cornerback. IUP is an NCAA Division II football program.

This year with the lockout, having a new defensive coordinator and playbook to learn, Owusu-Ansah showed up at training camp actually starting over again like a rookie.

He is currently starting at free safety for America’s Team until the Cowboys can find someone with more experience.

Known to everybody as Kwasi, he graduated in 2006 from Whetstone. He is the Braves career leading rusher for yards and touchdowns and led the team to their first back-to-back winning seasons in 10 years. As a senior, Kwasi was an all-Ohio honorable mention player.

One position the Cleveland Browns thought they did not have to worry about was punter.


The team is currently trying out several punters to replace Reggie Hodges, who is out for the season after suffering a torn left Achilles tendon during a non-contact drill during a recent practice. He was the only punter in camp.

Hodges leaves a big void for the special team unit.

He had a career year in 2010, his first with the Browns. He averaged 43.9 yards on 78 punts. His net of 39.0 yards was ninth in the NFL. Hodges’ 29 punts inside the 20-yard line tied for eighth.
