When he enters Lincoln Financial Field next week, New York Giants coach Joe Judge will be welcomed from the stands by a group of his friends from Lansdale Catholic High School, writes Pat Leonard for the New Jersey Daily News.
The game against the Eagles will be Judge’s first as NFL head coach to play in his hometown of Philadelphia. And thanks to the loosening of crowd restrictions, his family and friends will be there to support him.
“Normally we would all go over to Joe’s after the game and cook cheesesteaks and hang out,” said Judge’s close friend Tim Stairiker. “This year is obviously a little different, and we are all in agreement that social distancing after the game is best practice in this environment.”
However for some of his former teammates, seeing Judge on the sidelines for the first time live will be a surreal experience.
“I can’t unsee him as my high school quarterback, but he’s earned his way to the pinnacle of the coaching profession,” said Steve Mocey.
