The New York Jets announced today that one fan will be on the field to witness the induction of the second class into the team's Ring of Honor. This ceremony will take place at halftime of the Oct. 17 game when the Jets host the Dolphins at MetLife Stadium.
The winning fan will have the opportunity to meet the 2011 inductees — Larry Grantham, Freeman McNeil, Gerry Philbin and Al Toon. Fans who download the team's new smartphone app can enter to win this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.* In 2010 the team created the Ring of Honor to celebrate Jets greats and commemorate their place in team history.
The team launched its new smartphone app at the start of this regular season. A new way for fans to keep up with the team, the players and the games, the New York Jets Official App enhances gameday and the year-round experience for Jets fans at MetLife Stadium, at home or on the go. The New York Jets Official App gives fans access to real-time team news, player statistics, injury reports, depth charts, standings, team schedule, scores, game statistics, fantasy tracker, team video and photo galleries.
In addition, the app links fans to the team's social media community on Facebook and Twitter, featuring one-click tweeting and Facebook posting. Via the app on gameday, fans can join the Jets conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #jetsgameday.
The sweepstakes winner will receive a pair of mezzanine club tickets and a VIP parking pass for the Oct. 17 game. The sweepstakes ends at noon on Oct. 12. Fans can download the New York Jets Official App to their smartphones by texting the word JETS to 51288 or by searching "Official New York Jets" on iTunes, Android Market or Blackberry App World.
The Ring of Honor inductees are selected by an internal committee led by owner Woody Johnson. Weeb Ewbank, Winston Hill, Joe Klecko, Curtis Martin, Don Maynard and Joe Namath were members of the inaugural 2010 class.
