Boomer Esiason back under center in New Jersey for a good cause

Boomer Esiason is used to being under center in the old Giants Stadium. Thursday evening, he lined up under center in New Jersey once again. This time however, he wasn’t in the friendly confines of the old Giants Stadium. He was under center at Saint John Vianney High School taking some of the most meaningful snaps of his lifetime.

When people think of Esiason, they think of former NFL MVP or sports radio host. What shouldn’t be overlooked, is how active he is with various charities. Esiason is a major advocate for raising funds against Cystic Fibrosis, but also has contributed towards helping with numerous important causes in the tri-state area. This is what led the former NFL MVP down the parkway to Saint John Vianney High School Thursday evening.

Esiason was joined by the rest of the WFAN morning show to support Aaron Van Trease. Van Trease, who is a Saint John Vianney football, player suffered a serious spinal cord injury last season against Manasquan. He has been on a long road to recovery and has been seen as an inspiration to his teammates and community.

The Shore Conference football community came together to raise over 125,000 dollars for Aaron through a GoFundMe account. Last nigh, the Saint John Vianney football team and the WFAN morning show came together for a flag football game to raise more money for Van Trease’s recovery. In what was a great event, the community came together for a good cause. You can continue to support Van Trease on his road to recovery through Saint John Vianney High School.
