The weekend after the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre, the New York Giants paid tribute to the victims and wide receiver Victor Cruz honored 6-year-old fan Jack Pinto by writing “Jack Pinto, my hero” on his cleats. The Giants continue to reach out to those affected by the tragedy and will host hundreds of them at tomorrow’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The daughter and son-in-law of heroic Sandy Hook principal Dawn Hochsprung tweeted their gratitude for the Giants’ gesture.
