A Message from Steve Sanders

Monthly Motivation: 
"Don't just aim to be seen, aim to be SIGNIFICANT!" 

 Is it just me, or does it seem like with the emergence of social media, everyone wants to be seen now a days? 

I have no issue with social media at all. In fact, I love it! I believe it's a great tool. However, I believe you also have to be careful with how you use social media. 

So this is just a quick reminder... Don't aim to be seen, aim to be SIGNIFICANT! #FCA #FCACleveland

 Connecting with the

* May 26th, Browns alumni visited the Brown's practice that day. Steve was in the company of Bernie Kosar, Felix Wright and Hanford Dixon to name a few. Steve was also asked while there to speak to the team! Coach Hugh Jackson welcomed Steve to visit anytime.
