Victor Cruz joined Larry Fitzgerald and Tim Tebow at the William and Mary All-Pro Football Camp this week. While Tebow and Fitzgerald were both first round draft picks, Cruz took a much different road to the NFL.
Cruz played his football in the CAA with UMass from 2006-2009, but didn't see much playing time until his junior season. After going undrafted in 2010, Cruz was picked up by the Giants as a rookie free agent, and worked his way up the depth chart in 2011 to burst onto the scene.
Cruz took time on Tuesday morning to share his skills and experiences with young players in Williamsburg at the camp. He answered questions for the campers and stressed the importance of hard work and where it has gotten him.
The Tribe All-Pro Camp is for players ages eight through rising seniors in high school.
