Fan Starts GoFundMe To Pay Mayfield's Fine

Cleveland - A North Olmsted man stepping up to try and help Cleveland's next franchise quarterback.

John Hillbery started a GoFundMe page for Baker Mayfield after the Browns quarterback was fined for an obscene gesture made towards Offensive Coordinator Freddie Kitchens during the team's week 16 win over Cincinnati.

"As a Browns fan, we understand that Baker was just feeling dangerous after his touchdown. I am campaigning for Browns fans to come together and pay for his fine as a thank you for the joy that he has brought back to our fan base," said Hillbery. What he didn't expect, however, was Baker to respond.

Baker caught wind of the GoFundMe page, which as of the time of writing this has raised over $3,200. So, he partnered with Hillbery to donate all the funds to The Providence House of Cleveland, which protects at-risk children and supports families through crisis, strengthening communities to end child abuse and neglect.

Hillbery says the page will stay up until Sunday, January 6th.
