LaValle Stadium, Stony Brook Seawolves star football players including senior Miguel Maysonet (RB), senior Kyle Essignton (QB), senior Kevin Norrell (WR), senior Chris Fenelon (FB) and junior Marcus Coker (RB), visited young hospitalized patients at Stony Brook Children's today to lift their spirits and hand out team treats like wash-off Wolfie tattoos, football helmet shaped key chains and autographed posters and player photos. The staff was just as excited by the visit as they all posed for photos with the rising football stars.
