NORWALK - Three New York Giants football players made surprise visits to residents in southwestern Connecticut today.

Hundreds of students at Dolan Middle School in Stamford were among those to receive an unexpected meet-and-greet with Andrew Brown, Jake Ballard and Bear Pascoe.

The men spoke to students about the importance of physical fitness before heading over to Stamford's Sunrise Senior Center where they gave residents free recliners, courtesy of Bob's Discount Furniture.

The football stars made a final stop at the Ridgeway Shopping Center Stop & Shop to sign autographs and thank fans for their support.
