Charles Way, who played fullback and halfback for the New York Giants for five years beginning in 1995, came to the Stop & Shop supermarket at Beach Channel Drive and Beach 73 Street on Saturday as part of the team’s sponsorship agreement with the supermarket.
Way signed footballs, hats and promotional photos for the crowd that lined up to speak with him and take pictures. Way gained nearly 2,100 all purpose yards for the team, scoring a total of 14 touchdowns. He also served as a blocker for a number of Giant running backs.
Way poses with Vito Orlando, the manager of the supermarket at Arverne By The Sea, which is celebrating its first anniversary this month.
