Former defensive end for the New York Giants Justin Tuck was a robust player whose might and doughty plays made him a powerhouse for the team! Tuck was not only an indomitable force on the field, but also made waves off the field!
When you think of a great leader, the first thing that should come to your mind is Tuck! Whenever players may have been losing morale, Tuck was there to boost it! Win, lose or tie, Tuck never let his valiance wane!
Tuck was truly a forced to be reckoned with when it came to the game of football, but off the field he was a gentle GIANT! When the New York Giants announced he would no longer be with the team, in a classy move, Tuck took out a full page ad in the local New York newspaper thanking the New York Giants team, the organization and the fans!
Tuck never forgets his teammates and supports them through and through! For instance, each year former New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin holds a gala honoring cancer patients and Tuck is there each and every single year!
Through his organization, Tuck’s R.U.S.H. for literacy, Tuck and his wonderful wife Lauran, have helped bring awareness to the reading by stressing the importance of literacy for all!
Tuck and Lauran have created a beautiful family! They are amazing role models and inspiration to their sons Jayce and Jonah! They show them what it is like to be classy, kind, giving people. When it comes to being amazing parents, they give it their all!
Tuck gave the New York Giants two Super Bowls and countless plays, but in essence he gave us so much more than that! Tuck is the epitome of grace and an embodiment of what it means to be a hero! Tuck gave New York Giants fans nothing but class, which is why we will always have the utmost love and respect for him!
