New York Giants fans will remember Henry Hynoski as a powerful undrafted fullback who made great plays and came from a football background, but since retirement, Hynoski is so much more than his stats.
Hynoski finished playing football in 2015, after playing since 2011. With the New York Giants, he went on to win Super Bowl XLVI. Upon retiring from playing football, Hynoski became Head Coach for the school’s football team, the Shamokin Indians and Dean of Students at Shamokin Area High School, located in Coal Township, Pennsylvania. He has done great work for the school since taking this job in 2018 and brings with them his experience from playing in the NFL since 2011.
Hynoski serves as a coach teaching student-athletes the skills and knowledge they need to master the game of football. More importantly, Hynoski serves as a role model, a leader, and a mentor to the students arming them with the knowledge needed for high school and beyond.
He instills in his students the values and mindsets they need to be great players and people in general. Hynoski leads by example, as he was not only a talented player but also a role model.
Hynoski was always an asset to the New York Giants and supported his teammates. He also jumped at any opportunity to give back such as attending the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund gala with his wife Laura and helping the cause to end cancer with the Tackle Kid’s Cancer.
Shamokin Area High School most certainly hired Hynoski for the positions because they know that their student’s academic and football careers will be in good hands!
