Mesko a hit at Danvers Touchdown Club

(Continued)

DANVERS —

Mesko answered questions from fans about punting and how to place the ball and signed autographs.

"Punters are usually the forgotten member of the team, but they play such an important role," said Stellato. "'Z' calls himself the fourth-down quarterback because he holds for field goals and punts, so when it's fourth down he's called upon."

A former Salem High and Marist College standout quarterback, Stellato said Mesko is very exciting about playing in Super Bowl XLVI, but he refers to it as another business trip.

Stellato is heading out to Indianapolis Thursday morning and will take part in a cooking segment on Fox with Patriot defensive back Kyle Arrington's mother Sandra. She loves to cook and while the cameras roll, she'll prepare her signature macaroni and cheese dish or chili that she used to serve her son before his football games.
