Quigley gives up jersey to Vick for Teen Angel charity

Ryan QuigleyNew York Jets punter and graduate of North Myrtle Beach High School, Ryan Quigley is giving back to his community, through Michael Vick, the newly signed quarterback for the New York Jets.

According to a story in nj.com, Quigley has agreed to give up his no. 1 jersey for a donation by Vick to a local charity.

Quigley wore no. 1 last season for the Jets as their starting punter, and while playing with the Chicago Bears briefly last season. In late March, the Jets signed Vick to compete for the starting quarterback position.

Vick preferred the no. 7, but that was taken by current quarterback Geno Smith. He agreed to take the no. 8 for the season, but also wished to have the no. 1 jersey, worn by Quigley.

Normally, the players would work out some type agreement for the jersey in question.

The two talked during recent workouts in the Jets’ voluntary off-season strength and conditioning program, and Quigley agreed to make the switch for $10,000, with a condition — that the money go to charity.

Quigley requested that Vick make a donation of $10,000 to two charities. Vick will make the donation to North Myrtle Beach’s Teen Angel program and to the Boys & Girls Club of New York.

“Most of the time in the NFL, if a veteran requests your number, you work out a financial agreement, between the two players,” Quigley said. “I was not interested in the money for myself, I wanted to find a way to help some others.“

“I think it’s great that Ryan was willing to change as long as it was for a good cause,” Vick said. “I loved his idea.”
Quigley said he’ll decide soon on his uniform number for the 2014 season.

Teen Angel describes themselves as “a local organization that assists homeless and less fortunate North Myrtle Beach High School students by providing the little “luxuries” of teenage life, including schoolbooks, yearbooks, prom attire, personal care products, transportation to dentists and doctors, and so much more! These are students too old for foster care yet too young to do it all on their own, and they’ve made the tough decision to stay in school, despite the challenges, in hopes of a better future!”

Teen Angel was recently awarded Non-profit of the Year by the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce! They can be found online HERE
