Giants Star Victor Cruz Honors 6-Year-Old Sandy Hook Victim Jack Pinto

&w=450&zc=1&q=70

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz honored Sandy Hook Elementary shooting victim Jack Pinto during New York’s game against the Atlanta Falcons yesterday. On one of Cruz’s cleats the football player wrote “Jack Pinto, My Hero,” on the other, Cruz wrote ”R.I.P Jack Pinto.” Cruz also had a small honor for the six year old on one of his gloves. He wrote inscribed, “Jack Pinto This one is 4 U.!”

“There are no words that can describe the type of feeling you get when a kid idolizes you so much that they want to, unfortunately, put him in a casket with your jersey on,” Cruz told a reporter with the New York Daily News. “I can’t even explain it.”

Chris Johnson wore every single name on his cleats.

It's a class move. Shame it had to happen at all.

That is the most poignant thing that Victor Cruz did for himself, us, and Jack Pinto. I read Jack was wearing Victor's tee shirt when he went to school that day.
