Cleveland Classic Draws Alumni From Historic Schools
There's a football game planned on Saturday at First Energy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, but it's not a Browns game; it's an NCAA Division II College football game between Winston Salem State and Tuskegee. The contest is owned by the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, which builds a whole weekend of events around the game. It's called The Cleveland Classic.
Sports Commission President David Gilbert details all the activities that culminate in Saturday's game. He also recaps the recently-held National Senior Games, and previews next year's Gay Games, both being brought to Cleveland by the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission.
