Paul Brown exhibit
A new installment in the series of Paul Brown exhibits will open in the Massillon Museum’s Massillon Tiger Football Gallery on Aug. 19. The segment, "Paul Brown: Innovator" will focus on game changes Brown created that continue to influence football today. While coaching in Massillon, Brown first used game films to scout opponents and improve his own team. He tested players on their knowledge of a playbook. He hired full-time assistants, conceived the idea of a booster club, devised the draw play, and created the taxi squad. Most notably, he invented the modern face mask. The exhibit will include photographs from the Massillon Tiger Football Booster Club collection. The museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East in downtown Massillon. For more information, call 330-833-4061 or visit massillonmuseum.org. The museum is free.
