If Westbury native and Holy Trinity grad Ronnie Cameron receives a call from a National Football League general manager in late April, his road to the pros will certainly be one less traveled.

Cameron, who recently earned an information technology MBA, began his football career playing with friends in front of Park Avenue School in New Cassel and as a member of Mineola’s pee-wee program as a 7-year-old, yet described his younger self as more student than athlete.

New York Giants finish magical season with Super Bowl XLVI parade in the city that never sleeps

The streets were trembling, the buildings were shaking and the confetti was falling by the truck-full in the Canyon of Heroes on Tuesday, Feb. 7 as New York City said thanks to its beloved Big Blue.

The New York Giants celebrated the 21-17 Super Bowl XLVI (46) victory over the New England Patriots in style with a ticker-tape parade and estimated attendance of one million screaming onlookers. Fans laughed, cheered, even cried as their favorite team passed by on what could be magically mistaken as chariots of the football gods.

An estimated 40 tons of confetti showered the “G-MEN.” Fans barricaded on the sidewalks took to climbing streetlights, signs and building storefronts to catch a glimpse of the team.

Side and backstreets were filled to the max. One street even sported a touch football game among a sea of red, white and blue.
