Kent, OH – The Cleveland Browns will wear a "BW" decal on their helmets for the rest of the season to honor pro and college hall of famer Bill Willis. The two-time All-American at Ohio State who helped break pro football's color barrier with the Browns in the 1940s died Tuesday in Columbus. Browns coach Romeo Crennel calls Willis a pioneer who opened up doors for other minorities. Crennel is Cleveland's first African-American head coach. Funeral services for Willis are scheduled for Monday (December 3) at First Congressional Church on East Broad Street in Columbus.
