Wide receiver Victor Cruz had an incredible 2011 season en route to helping the New York Giants reach the Super Bowl.This being his first time playing for the Lombardi trophy, Cruz is pleasantly surprised with the lax dress code.
“My biggest thing, I didn’t know how to dress throughout the day. Did we have to wear a suit the whole time we’re here? Thank God we don’t,” Cruz said.
Cruz also can’t really believe how far he’s come after being an undrafted afterthought when he came out of UMass in 2010.
“Just seeing all the pictures and banners around the hotel. I’ve already taken like 50 pictures. I want to soak it in. I don’t want it to end, but I know it has to at the end of this week.”
Amid the back-and-forth trash talk and bravado that football players normally express leading up to big games, it is nice to hear a player who is genuinely humbled about reaching the top of his profession.
