As I sit back and reflect on Coach Tom Coughlin, I remember all the one on ones in your office talking football, game plan, etc. I think back to when I was named captain and I used to try and beat you to the facility. I would get there at 6, you where there. I got there at 530 and you were there. 5 am… I knew I would beat you then.. NOPE YOU WERE THERE. I remember feeling the hood of your car and it was cold. Come to find out there were nights you slept in the office. No one worked harder, no one demanded more and I LOVE YOU for it. I chose this picture for one reason and one reason only. Everyone knows you for your dedication to your team and how intense you are on the football field. But I will remember you for helping me become a man and challenging all of us to be better husbands and fathers and men. You did it the right way Coach. And you might be retiring from coaching but I’m sure this isn’t a goodbye. That’s not in your nature. #halloffame #5minutesearly #areyoush*ttingme

This picture really needs no caption!😂😂 As a player who has been in this league 11years and can say they have pretty much seen it all…. I want to say Thank you to Coach TC and it really has been an extreme pleasure. What we accomplished as a Unit meaning player/coach relationship is a given. Maybe I wasn’t used to your ways and I am sure u weren’t used to mine but in the end we accomplished something that no one could ever take away… A BOND!! One that will alway travel beyond what anyone can ever imagine. I want to thank coach for always being himself LOYAL CARING HONEST!! Some players appreciate it and some players need it. I know which one I was. Wishing coach the best as he will always be the coach with THE SMILE!! You are MY GUY and that will never change. As my mom will call him…. See you soon #UncleTC 😂😂😂😂 #HallOfFame #legend #UncleTC #TheSmile #FiveMinutesEarly #FirstClassAllTheWay

“This is the beginning of a new day, God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be gain; not loss, good, not evil; success, not failure; in order that I shall not regretr the price I paid for it.”
I’m a better father, husband, and man for having been blessed with the opportunity to learn, grow, and mature from this man. His energy, passion, love for life are unmatched. He is, and always be what I strive to be as a man and leader. #NYG
