MORRISTOWN, NJ - Atlantic Health System’s Goryeb Children’s Hospital had a special guest stop-by on day three of the NFL draft. Sam Darnold, the New York Jets first round draft pick, certainly didn't waste a moment in giving back to his new community.

Darnold arrived at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, NJ on Friday and on Saturday, he made his “his first big play” with the team, joining former Jets Legend, Tony Richardson, for a special draft party at Goryeb Children's Hospital. Darnold spent more than an hour visiting with children and their families, signing autographs, taking pictures and making some very special memories with parents and team members.

Darnold also checked in via FaceTime with additional children from the hospital who are undergoing or have completed treatment that had visited the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City earlier in the day with their families for the New York Jets draft party on the flight deck.
