When your favorite sports star becomes your best friend and loves you despite yourself, you pinch yourself at times to make sure it’s not just a dream.

Such is the case for me and NY Jets Legend, Joe Klecko.

The words “Devout Catholic” are not heard often, but do describe Joe and his wife Deb. For over 20 years, they have allowed me and my family to become part of their family.

Mary and I are so grateful for the Klecko’s, who in my darkest hours, have been there for me. We can’t wait to see sports justice served in person, when Joe is inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame.
