September 6th – Mr. Frank Reich

Frank Reich, a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, is known for his incredible comebacks. During his football career, playing for the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, and the Detroit Lions, he led his teams to victory twice in the face of virtually insurmountable odds.
