Charlie coaches the Philadelphia Eagles

“Images from this day will stay with Charlie forever.”

Growing up in New York, Charlie has always been a football fan. But his favorite team? Not the Jets or the Giants, but the Philadelphia Eagles.

Charlie's medical condition keeps him from playing football so he found another way to connect with his favorite team -- as a member of the coaching staff.  

His day as an Eagles' coach is an experience that will stay with him forever and get him through his medical treatments.

Charlie's wish was part of the ESPN "My Wish" series from 2006.
