He didn't play high school football, talked his way into a Browns tryout he wasn't invited to and slept outside. Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi is one of the NFL 's best training camp stories.

Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi didn't play football in high school, and talked his way into a Browns tryout. Now he's pushing for a roster spot after an emotional punt return for a TD.

Improbably, he's now suddenly pushing for a spot on Cleveland's 53-man roster as a return specialist, which general manager John Dorsey affirmed during a Monday interview on

."I'm happy he's here. He has an opportunity and he's taking advantage of it."

Without invitation or notice, Sheehy-Guiseppi started showing up to the summer football workouts at Phoenix College, forcing the coaches to allow him to join the team. There, he became an NJCAA All-American in 2016, leading the nation in kick return yards and touchdowns.

Sheehy-Guiseppi impressed Highsmith with a blazing 40 time of 4.38 seconds, earning an official tryout with the Browns in Berea. Problem was, the workout wasn't for another week. And Sheehy-Guiseppi, out of cash, didn't want to ask his mother, or any other family member, for money. So he signed up for guest passes to get into a 24-hour fitness center during the day, sleeping on grass outside a sports performance facility, where he trained, at night, all while preparing for his chance with the Browns.

"He blesses a lot of people with the shoes," Sheehy-Guiseppi said of Beckham."If anybody wants a pair, he gives them out."
