New Jersey Native Super Bowl Players

New Jersey Native Super Bowl Players

This Sunday is the game that we have all been waiting for, the Super Bowl. Whether you watch for the game, the halftime show, or the commercials, Super Bowl Sunday is upon us. The Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots will face off in Houston, Texas for the 51st Super Bowl. We at Hip New Jersey wanted to remind you of the New Jersey natives that helped these teams reach the big game.

Logan Ryan– The 25-year old cornerback is from Berlin, New Jersey. Logan Ryan stayed true to New Jersey and played for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights from 2010-2012. Ryan was selected in the third round by the New England Patriots in the 2013 NFL draft. This season is Ryan’s fourth year with the team and has started at cornerback for the past two years. This year Ryan led all cornerbacks in tackles.

This is not Ryan’s first Super Bowl game. He was a starter in the Patriots Super Bowl win against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015. Ryan will be looking to win his second Super Bowl in his short career. Ryan will have to cover his former college roommate, Mohamed Sanu.

Mohamed Sanu- The 27-year old wide receiver originally from Sayreville, New Jersey, but later moved to Dayton, New Jersey. Mohamed Sanu also stayed true to New Jersey and played for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights from 2009-2011. Sanu was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. After the 2015-2016 season, Sanu was a free agent. He chose to sign a five year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

In just his first season with the Falcons he is on his way to his first Super Bowl appearance. Sanu had 59 receptions, 653 receiving yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Falcons. Sanu will go head-to-head with his former college roommate, Logan Ryan.

Super Bowl bound!!!! #Brotherhood #RiseUp!

Melania Trump wears the Ralph Lauren ensemble very well and beautifully at President Donald Trumps Inauguration on Friday. Her sophisticated look was a sky-blue tweed cashmere jacket, a mock turtle neck dress and matching gloves and pumps! The outfit chosen on this special day will set the tone to Melania’s style for the rest of her term as First Lady. Ralph Lauren has also designed many of Hillary Clinton’s pant suits.

Saturday, held the Women’s March in Washington D.C to make a statement.Their statements varied from women’s rights and to LGBTQ’s rights and many other reasons. The Women’s March wanted to stand up for their beliefs, but not all could attend Washington D.C.’s march. This lead to many ‘sister marches’ throughout the state. The six places in New Jersey, were Trenton, Asbury park, Mount Laurel, Pompton plains, Westfield and Wycoff. Thousands of men and women attended the marches in New Jersey, one of them being Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen’s wife in Asbury park.

Sunday-Our home teams may not have made the playoffs but we still have a touch of New Jersey going to the super bowl. New Jersey’s very own Rutgers University graduate, Mohamed Sanu of the Atlanta Falcons scored a touchdown bringing them closer to the Super Bowl on February 5th. Mohamed Sanu was drafted from Rutgers University after being the first freshman to ever start as a wide receiver. It doesn’t end there for New Jersey, another Rutgers University graduate Logan Ryan of the New England Patriots is going to the Super Bowl! Ryan plays as a cornerback for the Patriots. Garden states working hard and will be playing harder come February 5th!

The Chris Canty Foundation at Saks Fifth Avenue


Classy brands recently teamed up for a great cause at Saks Fifth Avenue at The Shops at Riverside!

Chris Canty– former New York Giant,  current member of the Baltimore Ravens, and founder of the Chris Canty Foundation– was on hand for the Giuseppe Zanotti Trunk Show and viewing of the 2014 Aston Martin Rapides.

Ten percent of all purchases from this exclusive shopping event went to benefit Chris’ charity, which is dedicated to enhancing the development of #HipNJ- metropolitan area youth through sports, mentoring, educational programs, health and fitness activities.

#HipNJ‘s Kelly Dillon spoke to Chris- who won a Super Bowl with the Giants in 2011- about all the wonderful initiatives he is a part of, which also includes breast cancer awareness and domestic violence prevention.  

Kelly also chatted with Stephen Lewis, a consultant with Saks Fifth Avenue, on why #HipNJ is a great place for other athletes and celebrities to celebrate their philanthropic efforts, a sentiment that Aston Martin Summit | Short Hills‘s Allan Greenfield echoed while promoting the iconic automobile maker’s luxury vehicles!  

The Giuseppe Zanotti Trunk Show is one of many fabulous shopping opportunities that Bergen County’s Saks Fifth Avenue provides for the #HipNJ shopper.  Bookmark their website to find out about their other amazing events!
