He gave the four of them a positive moment after losing their house to a fire.
The No. 1 overall selection of the 2017 draft, does not have a connection to the Northern Cambria.
However, he traveled to this family once he had heard about the tragedy.
DJ Tommy Gunnz is the Twitter handle that tweeted his family’s thanks.
He is thankful to Garrett for surprising them and bringing toys for the Gunnz’s two children.
Garrett, who was ranked No. 9 on Pro Football Focus’s “Top 25 Players Under 25” List earlier in May, took a picture with the family, and that picture can be cherished forever.
Even during his busy offseason, the 2018 Pro Bowler drove more than three and a half hours to visit with the family.
Garrett has been in the news plenty of times recently with his humanitarian work, his contract, and his Twitter feed.
Garrett visited Tanzania for the first time in February as a part of Chris Long’s NFL Waterboys organization that provides clean water to East African communities in need.
Myles Garrett also teased Browns fans with a Twitter workout video and tweeted at Baker Mayfield wondering if he could help on goal-line packages:

Cleveland’s 1.8 red zone touchdowns per game ranked in the middle of the pack in the NFL in 2019.
The Browns will look to improve their efficiency in the red zone, and they may be able to include Garrett in goal-line packages to get the team’s offensive weapons more scores.
Garrett’s Upcoming 2020 Season
There has been a lot of positive news surrounding Garrett this offseason after he was followed by all of the suspension talk at the end of the 2019 season.
Garrett hopes that 2020 will be the second full season of his career.
The 272-lb, 6’4″ 24-year-old out of Texas A&M was named to the 2017 All-Rookie Team after playing just 11 games.
Then he dominated his way to 13.5 sacks, which ranked as the sixth-highest total for any NFL player in 2018.
He was a Second-Team All-Pro selection that year after playing 1,000 snaps for the first time in his career.
Heading into 2019, he was ranked No. 49 in the NFL Top 100 list.
Garrett then began his 2019 season with 10 sacks in his first 10 games, but then his career year came to a crashing halt with the indefinite suspension after the brawl with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He was then reinstated by the NFL in February,
Garrett, who could be paid as many as $25 million per year in the future, is excited to get to work in the 2020 season.
He has shown his commitment to the Browns and Browns fans this offseason.
Heading into his fourth NFL season, he is continuing to improve himself.
By the end of the 2021 season, Garrett could be the best defensive end in the league.
