Former Cleveland Browns star Josh Cribbs is back with the team – as an intern. The fan favorite who played quarterback at Kent State University was known for his dazzling kickoff returns during his 10 years in the NFL.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the 35-year-old Cribbs is now mentoring Browns players at the same position he played on special teams. 

The Walton D. Clarke Fellowship honors WKSU's founder and first General Manager, Walton D. Clarke.  The fellowship is a collaboration between Kent State's School of Journalism and Mass Communication and WKSU to provide an intensive real-world experience in radio production and reporting to a graduate student. The Walt Clarke fellowship is funded in part by generous contributors to a special endowment fund that provides a stipend to the selected student.
