Browns Signed A WR Who Had To Lie To Get Tryout

You do what you gotta do to get to where you want to get.

Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi hasn’t played football in three years but somehow managed to get himself a tryout with the Cleveland Browns. How did he do it? Well, he lied.

Sheehy-Guiseppi told that after spending two seasons playing football at a junior college in Arizona (Phoenix College) including a season where he was an All-American kick returner, Sheehy-Guiseppi had hopes of transferring to an FBS school.

Unfortunately, that didn’t transpire and Sheehy-Guiseppi couldn’t find a team that needed his services and he couldn’t return to Phoenix College because he could no longer afford it due to the fact that he no longer had a scholarship. His collegiate career basically ended after the 2016 season and Sheehy-Guiseppi couldn’t even earn a job in the CFL or AFL.

But Sheehy-Guiseppi never gave up on his dream and through a friend of a friend he found out Browns executive Alonzo Highsmith was hosting a tryout in Miami, Florida.

“I was like ‘just give me the address and I’ll talk to them myself,'” Sheehy-Guiseppi said.

“So I show up and the guy says something to me. He was like ‘who are you?'” Sheehy-Guiseppi’s response? “I’m Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi. I’m here for the tryout.”

At that point, the receiver said, he knew Highsmith, even though he definitely didn’t know the Browns’ executive. Once he was able to get his foot in the door and in front of the Browns, Sheehy-Guiseppi was able to showcase his 4.38 speed and began turning heads.

After impressing Highsmith in Florida, Sheehy-Guiseppi had to spend two nights in Miami, sleeping outside and going to a laundromat to charge his phone in hopes of getting that call from Browns GM John Dorsey.

Once he got the call to come to Cleveland to tryout in front of Dorsey and the Browns coaching staff and that’s exactly what he did.

The next challenge for Sheehy-Guiseppi is whether or not he can earn his way onto the 53-man roster.

    article. I wish to read even more issues approximately it!
    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get
    that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Also, the
    blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Excellent Blog! I am sure this paragraph has touched all the internet visitors, its really really nice paragraph on building
    up new blog.

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  5. Along with every thing which appears to be building inside this particular subject material, many of your points of view are actually very exciting. On the other hand, I am sorry, but I do not give credence to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everyone that your opinions are not totally justified and in reality you are yourself not really completely convinced of the assertion. In any event I did take pleasure in reading it.
