Giants First Round Pick Justin Pugh Calls the Warmup, Talks About His Video That Went Viral
Not many college football players get to hear their name announced on draft day--it's a very exclusive group.
For Philadelphia native Justin Pugh he joined that group last Thursday night, but he wasnt in attendance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Rather Pugh decided to stay in his hometown in Bucks County, PA with his close family and friends. Little did Pugh know that the whole sports world would be invited into his home when he first received the phone call from the New York Giants.
Pugh joined Todd Ranck on "The Sportsbash Warmup" on Tuesday to talk about his experiences thus far after being selected 19th overall in the NFL Draft.
Pugh also talked about the homemade video that went viral on YouTube showing Pugh getting a call from the Giants and the immediate pandemonium from his friends and family that followed after he hung up that phone.
Pugh is also a homegrown Philadelphia kid and has spent countless summers in Jersey Shore area in places such as Margate, Ventnor, Sea Isle City and of course Atlantic City.
Both the interview and video are posted below:
