Retired Browns Player Don Cockroft Visits Two Libraries

Don Cockroft KickingKardiac KidsDon Cockroft, Cleveland Browns player during the memorable Kardiac Kids days, will spin tales of those exciting football games when he presents at Main Library’s Lunch and Learn and at an author event at Boardman Library on Wednesday, October 9. 

Cockroft is the author of, “The 1980 Kardiac Kids – Our Untold Stories.” His bio notes: “Don Cockroft, one of the last double-duty kickers in the NFL, was the Browns punter for nine seasons and place kicker during his entire 13 year NFL career with the Browns. Cockroft’s final year would be the heart-pounding season of the 1980 Kardiac Kids. It was this amazing season and this one extraordinary football team which motivated him to write this book.”

Browns fans will want to Cockroft at either of these two author events.
