The receiver hauled in two touchdown scores to help the Carolina Panthers win in blowout fashion. Funchess met the Baldridge family after practice Sunday, when the whole team met with families of fallen soldiers.
Funchess' serviceman was Sgt. Dillon Baldridge, a 22-year-old North Carolina native who was killed in action on June 10 in Afghanistan. "He was a sniper", Funchess said, via the team's website.
Funchess wore Baldridge's initials on his helmet on Monday night. His mom said he was the most joyful boy you'd ever meet.

Justin Rose is the closest challenger to Tommy Fleetwood this week. I think they have narrowed a lot of the fairways from past year . But I'm fine with it, I can live with it.
"I'm two months older than him", Funchess said. But he wanted to do something more to honor Baldridge's memory.
"It was an honor just to get in the end zone for her". He then turned, raised his hand to his head and directed a military salute toward the crowd. "I made sure she got the first touchdown (ball)".
