The player signed a giant Patriots helmet that was carved out of wood by chainsaw artist Michael Higgins.
Last weekend, New England Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko made a visit to Maplewood Country Day Camp during one of their open houses. During his visit, local chainsaw artist Michael Higgins carved up a Patriots helmet out of wood which was then autographed by the player. "Michael Higgins, he actually carved that the day of the open house and Zoltan signed it,” said Sharon Maynard, who works at the camp. “He set up in the gym and he took pictures with families, with the kids, shook hands, signed autographs. He’s a real nice guy,” she said of Mesko. The giant wooden helmet now sits in the lobby of the main building at the camp for all to see.

Editor's Note: The following is part of a special "end-of-the-year" series in which local editors from your nearby Patch towns highlight their favorites in various topics. Jonathan Friedman - Editor, Attleboro-Seekonk Patch From my earliest days through college, I was a competitive swimmer. I was never good enough to be an Olympian, but I have a tremendous respect for those who are. And every four years, it is exciting to see swimming in the spotlight. Special kudos go to Michael Phelps, who looked like he had lost his magic when he didn't even win a medal in his first individual event, the 400 IM (first time since 2000 that had happened), but then regained it later in the week with spectacular wins in the 200 IM and 100 butterfly, while…

The New England Patriots will wear black-ribbon logos on their helmets and hold a moment of silence before Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers in Foxborough.
Foxborough will be center stage of the National Football League world for the second time in six days Sunday night when the New England Patriots host the San Francisco 49ers in primetime on NBC's Sunday Night Football.

The New England Patriots, along with the rest of the country, will have the 26 victims of Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on their minds and in their hearts during Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium.
