Harry Carson, New York Giants Hall Of Fame Linebacker, came to Suffern Middle School on Friday, March 9. Mr. Carson and spoke to Jennie Narcisco’s grade 6 and Russell Rice’s grade 8 classes. In those two sessions, he taled about the 6 Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
That day, Suffern Middle School hosted two multipoint videoconference sessions with Mr. Carson for eight schools nationwide in partnership with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jerry Csaki facilitated the discussion so that students from each school had a chance to ask questions.

86 Team Reunion was in the words of Maurice Carthon “the best weekend of my life!” Bill Belichick called our Reunion Weekend an “unbelievable, awesome experience that all of us will remember for the rest of our lives!” 51 of the 53 players and 8 of the 11 coaches including Parcells and Belichick participated in the event. For many of us it was fun to reassemble as a team once again but it was also an emotional experience that many of us never realized we’d have until we were in the presence of one another and able to express what it meant to be a part of The Team and forever linked to one another!

Here’s an article I wrote for Odyssey Couleur Travel Magazine about my wife Maribel and I having a couples getaway in sunny Orlando. I thought some of my fans might enjoy seeing a different side of me, as well as reading about some nice, warm weather during this brutally cold January. You can find the article in the winter edition of the magazine, if you’re interested in picking it up.
It’s very seldom that my wife Maribel and I get an opportunity to spend real “quality” time together without family or job expectations. We are both guilty of putting family first and too often our careers over pleasure. Maribel is a Sales Manager with Continental Airlines and I’m a Sports Consultant, which includes but is not limited to owning my own business, Harry Carson Inc. I also do broadcasting with the New York Giants and I am Executive Director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which works with the NFL to create more diversity in the league in such positions as general managers, head coaches, assistant coaches, scouts, front office personnel and game day officials.
We’ve both visited Orlando many times before, but in each case it was job-related or about making the kids and family members happy. Traveling to Orlando had never really been about us – until now! We were presented with an opportunity to spend several days exploring an area that most people only see as a Mouse Kingdom. Just being able to step away from every- thing for a day was enough for me, but to get away for several days with my wife was all I needed to enjoy myself.
