Former Bradwell Institute standout Gary Guyton is a busy man.

On Sunday, Guyton was all over the field against Pittsburgh. Guyton, a linebacker, helped the New England Patriots hold off the Pittsburgh Steelers 39-26 at Heinz Field. The BI product sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and knocked down a pass during the game.

On Monday, Guyton hosted the Gary Guyton Fun Night to raise funds to support the Gary Guyton Adopt-A-High School Initiative, which offers academic and SAT/ACT assistance to underserved students.

Nearly 100 Patriots fans joined Gary and his Patriots teammate in a corn hole/bean bag toss tournament at CBS Scene in Foxboro.

"It is tremendous to see how our fans have come out and support us in this worthwhile cause," Guyton said. "As a professional athlete, we realize we are in a position to make a difference and we want to do everything we can to help kids succeed."

The event included a grand prize raffle for a lucky fan to win 4 Gary Guyton Ultimate Fan Experience tickets. Fans also had the opportunity to bring their cameras and take pictures with the Patriots.

"We had a great time. It was great to see my team mates and fans going at it. It was a blast," Guyton said.

The Patriots will take on the Colts at 4:15 p.m. Sunday on CBS.
