Whether it’s cracking jokes with players, talking football like an on-air analyst or pulling pranks on coaches, 17-year old Lambert High School student Charlie Mabry finds ways to make the day for Lambert football players—every day. One of his best buds on the team, offensive lineman Sean Bailey, returned the favor Tuesday evening when he surprised Charlie, wheelchair bound with muscular dystrophy, at his home in Suwanee with an authentic, on-field jersey of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, signed by Manning himself. Manning is one of Charlie’s favorite players on his favorite NFL team.
