Thanks for the support, coach

Former New York Giants’ head coach Jim Fassell (center) scores a civic touchdown after being presented with a commemorative plaque at KeySpan Park for his support of the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance Foundation.

Joining the ex-gridiron gladiator are Wall founder Sol Moglen (left) and Brooklyn Cyclones’ Administrative Manager Kevin Mahoney.

The 30 x 12 foot granite palisade, located near the Coney Island ballpark, 1904 Surf Avenue, stands as a poignant memorial to local 9/11 victims with laser-engraved images of 137 firefighters, 11 police officers and seven Port Authority cops.
