New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski, better know as the Hynocerous, has carried the ball a grand total of five times for 20 yards in his two-year NFL career. And although he specializes in making brutal blocks to free Big Blue's running backs, he'd like to get his hands on the ball a bit more in 2013. Accordingly, one of his offseason goals is to improve his footwork and show the coaches he's capable of handling the rock.
"I can get better and I’ll be self-scouting myself in the coming weeks to see where and how. One of the things I think I can work on my quickness and foot speed. I’d like to be able to show the coaches that I can carry the ball on occasion to give them another option if they’re looking to mix things up. So that’s definitely something I’m going to look at doing," Hynoski wrote on his blog.
Getting the ball has been a rarity for Hynoski, but he ended 2012 in a big way by scoring his first NFL touchdown in a 42-7 blowout of the Philadelphia Eagles. He then promptly introduced us all to, perhaps, the greatest touchdown dance of all-time.
Arguably spurned from the Pro Bowl, Hynoski was recognized for a tremendous season by USA Football, who named him to the 2012 All-Fundamentals Team. A well deserved honor for one of the more consistent players on the team.
If Hynoski is able to come through on his offseason plans, and the coaches do see him as a viable "mix it up" threat in 2013, he will only make an already dangerous offense that much more dangerous.
