On the Field With Frank Stams
Frank “The Tank” Stams had an impressive football journey from Northeast Ohio to the pros. He first made a name for himself as a high school star at St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron, developing into a top recruit. Stams took his talents to Notre Dame where he played fullback before switching to linebacker under coach Barry Alvarez.
This position change proved fateful, as Stams went on to help the Fighting Irish win a national championship in 1988. His standout play for the dominant Irish defense made Stams an NFL prospect. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in 1989.
Though Stams played for the Rams for a few seasons, the Ohio native dreamed of suiting up for his hometown Cleveland Browns. In 1992, he got his wish when the Browns acquired Stams in a trade with the Rams. From 1992-1995, Stams thrilled his local fans by playing linebacker for Cleveland.
Teaming up with stars like Bernie Kosar, Stams left an indelible mark on the Browns during his four seasons. He brought passion and leadership to some talented Cleveland teams in the early 1990s. Stams’ football journey came full circle when the local kid got to play for Northeast Ohio’s beloved Browns.
Life After the NFL for Frank Stams
After hanging up his cleats, Frank Stams found ways to stay involved in the community that supported him throughout his football career. He continues giving back to Northeast Ohio through his work with the Cleveland Browns Foundation. Stams participates in multiple charitable initiatives sponsored by the Foundation, like the Adaptive Football League supporting those with physical and mental challenges.
Stams also served as the President of the local chapter of the NFL Alumni organization for several years. In this role, he helped raise over $100,000 for Special Olympics Ohio.
Giving back to the city of Cuyahoga Falls that raised him, Stams ran for and won a seat on city council. He takes a bipartisan approach as councilman, aiming to improve life for all his constituents.
When he needs a football fix, Stams co-hosts a podcast called “In the Dawg Pound” with former Browns teammates like Hanford Dixon and Mike Tomczak. On the podcast, Stams gets to reminisce about his playing days and sound off on the current state of the team he loves. Though his playing days are done, Stams finds fulfillment through service, local government, and staying connected to Browns football through media endeavors. He continues to be a proud ambassador for both the Cleveland Browns and the Greater Cleveland community.
All Aboard the Browns Fan Cruise
When asked what he’s looking forward to most on the upcoming Browns Fan Cruise in March 2024, Stams said: “What I’m looking forward to most is the time on the ship. We’ve got a couple of days at sea where, you know, there’s going to be, you know, just, it’s just us. And, and, and the people coming on to enjoy the experience of players and, and the fans and the Browns fans and Browns Nation.”
Stams is ready to interact with fans throughout the cruise – whether at dinner, on the dance floor, or just hanging out on deck. He can’t wait to make new friends among Browns Nation out on the open ocean!
