Super Bowl star visits McCann School of Business

SUNBURY — Even though he is a Super Bowl winner and could live anywhere he wanted, New York Giants star fullback Henry Hynoski chooses to live right here in the Valley — with his parents.

The Southern Columbia graduate visited the McCann School of Business and Technology on Tuesday to meet the staff and several dozen fans who waited in line at the South Fourth Street location.

“I couldn’t wait to meet him,” Nick Gulli, 12, of Northumberland, said. “This is so great.”

Hynoski arrived at the school at about noon and received a warm welcome from staff members.

“We think this is great of him to come here,” campus director Susan Lynch said. “It is nice to see people showing up here to see Henry and to see what the campus has to offer.”

Hynoski has been on a tour of the Valley, making appearances on a regular basis, but said this was the first time he has been to Sunbury.

“It’s great here,” he said. “I have many friends and family in the area, so it is always nice to come back and see them.”

Hynoski doesn’t have to return to the Giants until April 15, and he said he is enjoying his time off.

“I stay right here in the area with my parents,” he said. “This is my home, and I love being here.” He said he also has a home in New Jersey while the season is in.

As several people stood outside McCann waiting to meet their hero, students inside kept stopping to catch a glimpse of Hynoski.

“I love coming out and meeting everyone. It’s funny because I have found that I have more cousins than I knew I had,” he joked. “I’m good with that, though, because it shows people care about me, and the support I have received has been amazing.”

Hynoski said winning a Super Bowl was something he only ever dreamed of.

“What can I say about that?” he asked. “Everything that has happened has been something that you can only imagine. This whole thing has been amazing.”

Playing with the likes of Giants quarterback Eli Manning and against other NFL stars is something Hynoski said he got over quickly.

“You get star struck at first,” he said. “Then you know you have to get over it and get down to business because you are there for a reason, and those same idols you had that you are playing against now become the enemy.”
