Excited Kent fans head to College World Series | News
Dozens of excited Kent State fans are en route to watch the Golden Flashes play in the College World Series.
Browns star and proud KSU alum Josh Cribbs chartered a bus for fans to get to Omaha to see the baseball team play.
"I want to do my part to make sure they have success," Cribbs said. "And as you can see, there are a lot of other people that feel the same way I do."
Cribbs put together the trip, and at $150 per person for the trip, game ticket and hotel room, he made it affordable as possible.
"None of us could make that drive on our own," said KSU fan Connor Weir. "Just with gas money and hotel, he really provided everybody with a great opportunity."
"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity," KSU fan Dustin Fowkes said. "To be able to experience it and have Josh put the money up and invite us to come along. It is a great thing."
"I love my sports teams, I love Kent State, I love everything Cleveland stands for," Cribbs said. "The city has adopted me and this is a way to show my gratitude."
Kent State plays Arkansas in the double-elimination tournament at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The bus left Cleveland Friday morning around 8:30 a.m., and will arrive in Omaha late Friday night. It will return home Sunday afternoon.
