Victor Michael Cruz (born November 11, 1986) is an American football wide receiver who is currently a free agent. He played college football at UMass, and signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010. With the Giants, he won Super Bowl XLVI and was invited to the Pro Bowl after the 2012 season.
Cruz has a daughter, Kennedy, with Elaina Watley; they became engaged on the day of their daughter’s baptism. In the summer of 2010, Cruz founded the “Young Whales” clothing line with former teammate Nate Collins. Cruz and former teammate Osi Umenyiora were among the brand’s original models.
Following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, Cruz honored one of the victims, Jack Pinto, age 6. Pinto was a fan of Cruz, who wore a tribute on his shoes in the game against the Atlanta Falcons two days after the massacre. In permanent marker, one shoe read “R.I.P. Jack Pinto” and the other “Jack Pinto My Hero.”  On December 19, 2012, he visited the Pinto family in Newtown, saying, “I felt like it was only right that I pay my respects to him and be as comforting to that family as much as I can.” Cruz gave the cleats and gloves he wore in the Falcons’ game to Pinto’s brother, Ben.
