Multiple sources tell us longtime #Giants regional scout Steve Verderosa, who spent more than three decades with the team, will not return for the 2020 season. Prior to scouting for NY, he was with the #Bucs.
The 2019 season is Steve Verderosa's 32nd with the Giants since he joined the organization's scouting staff in 1988. Verderosa came to the Giants after serving in the scouting department of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Verderosa began his collegiate career at Central College in Pella, Iowa as a wide receiver and punter after graduating from Melville High School in Setauket, N.Y. He then moved to New York Institute of Technology, where he continued his dual roles.
After receiving a degree in general architecture and a design award in his senior year, Verderosa had a tryout with the Washington Redskins as a wide receiver and punter in 1977. He also had a stint with the Cleveland Browns as a punter in the 1978 preseason.
Verderosa worked for one year as an architectural draftsman before getting the urge to return to football. He began a coaching career as an offensive assistant at his alma mater, New York Tech. Verderosa then spent two seasons as a coach at St. Anthony's High School before landing a spot as defensive backfield coach at Columbia University. From there, he moved on to C.W. Post (now Long Island University Post) for four years as secondary coach and then joined the scouting department of the Buccaneers.
Verderosa was born in Roslyn, Long Island. He is married to the former Lori Ann Felicetti. The Verderosas reside in Apex, N.C. They have two sons, Alex and Matthew, and one daughter, Mikala, and a grandson, Archer Steven, the son of Alex.
