Steve Weatherford at Pier 13

One of the hottest spots in #HipNJ this summer is Pier 13 in Hoboken, and we soaked up the sun with one of Hoboken’s hippest residents, New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford.

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spoke with the Super Bowl XLVI winner about his time living in Hoboken and around the Garden State, his NFL career, and his passions off the gridiron.

In between Steve and Lisa Marie’s games of corn hole (his favorite!), we also learned what he loves best about Hoboken- its family atmosphere (he is a proud father to three adorable children with his wife, Laura) and close proximity to New York City, which allows him to participate in numerous philanthropic events and publicity opportunities.

In his short time living in #HipNJ, Steve has made a “giant” impact.  Besides helping Big Blue to their fourth Super Bowl victory, he has been the face of many charity efforts, including the Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics New Jersey.  Steve is also the Fitness and Health Ambassador for the Boys and Girls Club of New Jersey (and is very passionate about healthy living in general).

Steve is big on social media (you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram at @Weatherford5) and uses it as a portal to reach out to his fans.  Sometimes he even grants their unique requests, as evident when he escorted Bayonne’s Lauren Delbert to her prom.  Steve has also been a fixture with mainstream media, and has numerous television hosting gigs and magazine covers to his portfolio.

We have a feeling Steve’s rapidly rising star will not only shine on #HipNJ, but the world, for years to come!
