Jets to honor Pawtucket's Gerry Philbin

October 13, 2011

Pawtucket native Gerry Philbin sat down to watch his old New York Jets team play football last month when the phone rang at his home in West Palm Beach, Fla.

“I was quite surprised to hear from the owner of the Jets,” Philbin added. “He was such a gentleman to make the call personally. I told him it was a great honor.”
