New York Giants WR Victor Cruz honored one of the victims from Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut at Sandy Hook Elementary by placing the boys name on his shoes and gloves during today’s game.
Jack Pinto, 7, was one of the 20 children who were shot and killed Friday, a day that no one will ever forget.
All NFL teams will observe a moment of remembrance before their games on Sunday and Monday. The New York Giants and New England Patriots will have specific tributes to the fallen on their uniforms.
But one player, Cruz has taken it a step further. He reached out to the Pinto family after hearing that Jack was a big fan of his and will be honored his life by wearing shoes and gloves with Jack’s name on them during today’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Cruz told ESPN that the family was considering burying Jack in Cruz’s jersey.
My sincerest condolences to the entire Pinto family,” Cruz tweeted on Sunday morning. “My prayers are with you during this extremely difficult time.”
