5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Teller, the $56-million man

NFL star lineman and Liberty High graduate Wyatt Teller, Fauquier veterans and enhanced sheriff’s traffic safety patrols.
$56.8 million

The value of Liberty High School graduate Wyatt Teller’s four-year contract extension with the Cleveland Browns.

An all-pro offensive guard, Mr. Teller’s contract includes $28 million in guaranteed money, ESPN reported this week.

The 2013 LHS grad earned Virginia Group AA defensive football player of the year honors as a senior. Mr. Teller graduated from Virginia Tech, where he shifted to the offensive line.

The Buffalo Bills drafted him in the fifth round of the 2018 draft with the 166th overall pick. The Browns traded for the 6-foot-4, 314-pounder in 2019, and he became a star in Cleveland, earning second-team All Pro honors last season.

“Teller has been a stalwart at right guard for the Browns the past two seasons,” ESPN reported. “Thanks in part to Teller's emergence, Cleveland ranked third in the league in 2020 in rushing yards.”

Military veterans live in Fauquier County, according to the American Community Survey, conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Veterans account for 11.4 percent of the county’s total population.

Vietnam War-era veterans account for the largest number here, followed by those who served in the Gulf War era, 1990 to 2001.

Among the veterans in Fauquier, 1,359 have “service-connected disability ratings.”


301

Employees retired or resigned from Fauquier County Public Schools in 2020-21, according to a new report.

Excluding retirements, the school system had a “turnover rate” of 11.6 percent of the total workforce.

Among teachers and other “certified” employees, the separations totaled 178 versus 104 the previous year and 134 in 2018-19.

Retirements last year totaled 78.

The school board will review a 15-page turnover report Monday night.

Lions Clubs serve Fauquier County.

The Remington, Warrenton and Warrenton Sunrise clubs have more than 46,000 peers around the globe, with total membership of 1.4 million.

Founded in 1916 and headquartered in Illinois, Lions Clubs International focuses on community service.

Lions focus on sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues and other programs.


$254,000

Surplus funds from fiscal 2021 that the board of supervisors this week allocated to target speeding and other dangerous driving on county roads.

The funds will pay six months’ worth of overtime for two deputies on each 12-hour shift to focus on traffic safety.

“The deputies will be conducting targeted enforcement on all of the major roadways in the county,” the sheriff’s office said in its request for the funds.
