What They're Saying

On playing the fullback position:
“The best position in the world— you get to run, catch and block, you do everything a football player dreams of.”
- Henry Hynoski, THE NEW YORK TIMES - August 10, 2011

Professional philosophy:
“I think for a fullback, I bring a level of physicality and athleticism with it and that’s going to enable me to be moved around more so like a tight end than a traditional fullback.”
- Henry Hynoski, Patricia Traina, Bleacher Report - December 8, 2014

“One of the most versatile and reliable fullbacks in the game.”
- Fox Sports Announcer, Andy Furman - January 10, 2015

“Hynoski did a good job up inside blocking. He did get involved in the perimeter blocking on the long touchdown run, so he probably had more plays than he has had in a couple, three weeks, and it resulted in some good productions”
- Tom Coughlin - December 9, 2014

“Henry Hynoski, I’m familiar with, he played at Pitt and Southern Columbia High School. I’ve followed him since he was in high school, really.”
- Offensive Coordinator, Ben McAdoo - February 27, 2014

“Hynoski is one of the best lead blockers in the NFL. By getting lower than his opponent, he is able to take on bigger defenders and move them out of running lanes. He also excels at getting to the next level to engage with linebackers, creating even more room for his teammates with the ball.”
- USA All-Fundamental Team Annoucement 2012

“He’s a tough guy. He’s got a role to play (and)... does it very well.”
- Tom Coughlin - August 6, 2012

“In terms of his individual play, he’s been terrific. He blocks very well. When we’ve given him the ball a few times … he’s always come through for us.”
- Offensive Coordinator, Kevin Gilbride - October 25, 2012

“He’s a guy who wants to make sure he’s got everything down and he doesn’t want to make a mental mistake.”
- Eli Manning, November 14, 2012
