Working with the Cleveland Browns, Coach Sam Rutigliano and team pyschiatrist Dr. Gregory B. Collins co-founded Inner Circle to combat NFL substance abuse and instill sportsmanship, leadership, and character in all players.  The Brown's Inner Circle serves as a template for all NFL teams today.

Today, Coach Sam and Dr. Collins have come together once again to expand the Inner Circle into Cleveland's inner-city.  Coach Sam's Inner Circle Foundation now seeks to lead the disadvantaged children of Cleveland in a community-sponsored program aimed towards combating drug abuse, crime, and violence while providing positive, character-building opportunities through sports, academics, and mentorship.




The vision of Coach Sam's Inner Circle Foundation is that all educationally

at-risk youth will succeed.



Our mission is to integrate literacy, personal development, and health & fitness to develop the whole child.
