(Canton) - Ray Prisby is such a big Cleveland Browns fan, he wears nothing but brown and orange, and his collection of memorabila about the Browns is so extensive, some of it is in the Browns Museum at FirstEnergy Stadium. Now, Prisby has another way to prove he's a great Browns fan, winning induction into the Ford Hall of Fans at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. He's accepting the honor along with superfans from the Arizona Cardinals and Las Vegas Raiders.
Prisby learned the honor at his hotel in Tampa, when he got a knock on the door at his hotel from Pro Football Hall of Fame President and CEO David Baker (at right in photo with Prisby). Prisby and other finalists for the honor had been flown to Tampa to attend Sunday night's Super Bowl LV.
Prisby is the first Browns fan to be honored since Ford began sponsorship of the Hall of Fans two years ago. Before that, other Browns fans were honored by the Hall of Fame, including John "Big Dawg" Thompson, and Debra "Bone Lady" Darnall.
