Victor Cruz To Help Sandy Hook Victim’s Family

Victor Cruz Honors Sandy Hook Victim 2

( 4UMF NEWS ) Victor Cruz To Help Sandy Hook Victim’s Family:

On Sunday afternoon, Giants receiver Victor Cruz paid tribute to Jack Pinto, one of the students killed in Friday‘s Sandy Hook tragedy, by writing Jack’s name on his shoes. He did so because Jack Pinto loved him above all other players, loved him so much that he may well be buried in a Cruz jersey.

After the game, Cruz stood and spoke before a semicircle of cameras and microphones four and five deep, and tried to make sense of the fact that he was one of the most important people in the life of someone who died decades too soon … so much so that Pinto would watch Giants games wearing his Victor Cruz jersey.

“It’s humbling,” he said. “I was honored to know I was his favorite player. It’s just unreal what happened.”

Like the rest of the country, Cruz watched and read with horror as the events of Sandy Hook unfolded on Friday. And by Saturday, he realized that he had a personal connection.

“My Twitter feed started filling up with ‘Jack Pinto, Jack Pinto,’” he said. “I’m reading this, and I’m in my hotel room fighting back tears.” He asked his girlfriend Elaina to try to track down Jack’s family, and within 20 minutes, she’d located them and patched him in on a three-way call.

This first time, Cruz and Jack’s family didn’t talk for very long, just a few minutes of shared sadness. But Cruz pledged to honor Jack’s memory in Sunday’s game, and more importantly, pledged that he’d be there for the family for a long time to come.

He’ll head to Newtown later this week to present Jack’s family with the cleats and the gloves. He was sketchy about the exact date, perhaps because he didn’t know, perhaps because he’d rather not turn a visit with the Pinto family into a media opportunity. “The last thing I want to do is add stress on the family in this tough time,” he said.

Going forward, he wants to do all that he can for the family. “We may do a fundraiser, something like that,” he told Yahoo! Sports. “For now all we want to do is comfort the family. We’ll think about other things we can do to help in the long term.”
