Kardiac Kids Kicker Coming to Porter Library
Don Cockroft will talk about his new book about the Browns' Kardiac Kids season
Red Right 88.
Those words make Cleveland Browns fans wince 30 years later.
A Browns player who was witness to all the highs and lows of the Kardiac Kids era will be at Westlake Porter Library on Sept. 25, talking about his new book about that time.
Don Cockroft, who was a punter and placekicker for the Browns, will come to the library to discuss his book, 1980 Kardiac Kids: Our Untold Stories.
Cockroft will sign copies of the book from 6 to 6:45 p.m., and again after his 7 p.m. talk.
Cockroft was the Browns' placekicker for 13 seasons and punter for nine. It was in his final season, 1980, that the Browns had their Kardiac Kids season that came to a crushing end with the infamous Red Right 88 play in the AFC playoffs against the eventual Super Bowl champion Oakland Raiders.
1980 Kardiac Kids: Our Untold Stories features stories of that season from players and fans, photos and game recaps.
