NY Giants Cut Former Hopatcong High Standout
Martinek, the state's all-time leading high school rusher, was undrafted free agent.
Martinek, who is a Rutgers graduate and the state's all-time high school rushing leader, was signed by Big Blue as an undrafted free agent in April. In May, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Martinek looked "very steady" in practices.
Martinek had also recently scored a touchdown in the preseason for the Giants, taking a 14-yard reception in against the New York Jets in a game earlier this month.
Many in town have embraced Martinek's quest to make the team, and he received a visit at camp by his family and Hopatcong High School Athletic Director Tom Vara in early August.
