GIANTS' ROOKIES TAKE ANNUAL HALLOWEEN HOSPITAL VISIT
BY CHARLIE MULE
Being an NFL rookie can be challenging, especially getting acclimated to the playbook, a new team and a new coach. Being a rookie can also be a lot of fun, too.
For the sixth straight year, the Giants' rookie class visited Hackensack University Medical Center – Sanzari Children's Hospital during Halloween Week. The group spent the day trick-or-treating with the kids and spreading some Halloween spirit. As has become tradition, the rookies go all-out for the trip and show up dressed head to toe in their costumes.
Here are the rookies who attended and the costumes that they wore:
CB Eli Apple - Robin
WR Sterling Shepard - Mr. Incredible
Safety Darian Thompson - Popeye
LB B.J. Goodson - Fred Flinstone
RB Paul Perkins - Scarecrow
TE Jerell Adams - Fireman
DE Romeo Okwara - Penguin
WR Roger Lewis - Spicy Mustard
Safety Andrew Adams - The Hulk
This year's costumes were selected at Party City by a trio of Giants' veterans - Devon Kennard, Landon Collins and Dwayne Harris.
"It's great," Shepard said. "Just to kind of get them away from what they're going through right now and talk to some of their parents."
Whenever we can use our platform to touch these kids lives or anyone's lives it really makes an impact," Perkins added. "To give them someone to look up to and a role model is something we should all take advantage of."
