CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - CrossCountry Mortgage on Sunday announced a $100,000 donation to the high school of fallen Navy Corpsman Maxton Soviak at the Cleveland Browns “Salute to Service” game against the Detroit Lions.

Soviak was killed in August in a bombing outside Kabul’s airport during the evacuations of Americans and Afghanistan residents.

The 22-year-old Berlin Heights native graduated in 2017 from Edison High School; he played on the Chargers football, wrestling and track teams.

CrossCountry Mortgage (CCM) hosted Soviak’s family members, coach and teammates during the game, where the donation was presented in an on-field ceremony.

According to a news release, the donation will be used for enhancements of the school’s athletic facilities.

It was accepted by the Soviak family and Edison High School Football Coach Jim Hall.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
