The soldiers were very appreciative of the former Heisman Trophy winner for staying and for taking the time to take selfies with them.
Throughout his rookie season the #1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft was defined by both his bold personality and his facial hair. Last month Mayfield debuted his new mustache at the start of training camp.
Because of what he was able to do on the field last year in Cleveland he was able to get away with it.
Mayfield (at right with wife Emily whom he married earlier this summer) created hope across the state of Ohio with his plays on the field and proved to be one of the most exciting figures in the league.
In 2018 the Browns finished the season with a 7-9 record. However after Mayfield took over as the starting quarterback in the early stages of the 2018 season he electrified the team while throwing for 3725 yards 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
One of the turning points of the season was when Mayfield led the Browns to a 28-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons which began a streak of winning four of their next six games.
After the win Mayfield had a response that drew national headlines.
I just woke up feeling real dangerous he told via Cleveland.com.
Mayfield told Sports Illustrated recently Its being the same guy every day... setting the expectations and working for it. Really taking pride in being a good teammate."
Mayfield came in second in the voting for the NFLs 2017-2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year voting behind New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley.
