George Mateo (Game Day Staff Supervisor)

George Mateo is a Game Day Staff Supervisor for the Philadelphia Eagles who served in the United States Army. George volunteers with an organization called Team Red White & Blue (RWB), whose mission is: To enrich the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Through this group, he participates in several local and national events with ties to veterans and veteran families. Such as the Travis Manion 9/11 Heroes Run, Run as One PTSD/Suicide Awareness, 500 for the Fallen, VetHack Ruck March, The Day We Remember Run/Walk. While activities are mostly physical in nature, RWB partners with the Travis Manion Foundation in community clean-ups in the Point Breeze section of Philadelphia, with the the Salvation Army sorting toys, and with local soup kitchens to deliver and serve meals to shelters throughout the city of Philadelphia. One of the highlights, for George as a member of Team RWB, is running the game ball with the West Point Marathon team from the Art Museum to Lincoln Financial Field the night prior to the Army-Navy Game.
