Stepping in from Ohio State with the Cleveland Browns, Schafrath maintained the high level that coaches expected at the position of Left Tackle.  He protected the weak side brilliantly but used his powerful frame to create holes for Cleveland backs.  In fact, on eight occasions, Cleveland Browns’ Running Backs won the rushing title with Schafrath anchoring the left side. The former Buckeye helped Cleveland win the 1964 NFL Championship. We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the fans, friends and family…
