Keith Bulluck to be honored by ‘New Yorkers for Children’ organization

Keith Bulluck

 

Seven years ago Keith Bulluck started ‘The Keith Bulluck Believe and Achieve Foundation’, growing up a foster child Keith understands the challenges that face foster kids.  

“Young people in foster care often figure they will be stuck in minimum-wage jobs after they leave the system. I’m proof it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, I had natural ability, size and a lot of breaks, but you also need focus in life, someone to bring you along, someone to help you develop job skills.” 

Bulluck’s foundation has hosted charity fundraisers, toy drives, holiday parties for foster kids and their families and donated school supplies for kids over the years in both Tennessee and New York.  Keith’s work off the field garnered him the “Titans Walter Payton Man of the Year” back in 2007. 

“I am pleased that Keith is being recognized for more than he does on the field.” 
  
“He is a terrific player and is committed to making our community a better place.” – Jeff Fisher 2007
As Bulluck now continues his football career with the NY Giants he will be honored next month for his charitable work with foster kids by ‘New Yorkers for Children’ organization; Keith will receive the Nicholas Scoppetta Child Welfare Award. 
 
Past honorees of the Nicholas Scoppetta Child Welfare Award include Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Geoffrey Canada, and Russell Simmons.

Competition at the linebacker spot for the NY Giants

Jonathan Goff

 

As reported by Ohm Youngmisuk (ESPN) Keith Bulluck took snaps at outside linebacker in certain packages during Monday practice. As Ohm noted Bulluck was brought into to replace Antonio Pierce in the middle; with Bulluck taking snaps at outside linebacker adds a wrinkle to linebacker situation for the Giants. I don’t believe this is alarming in any way or a sign of what type of camp Bulluck is having, as I think this is just a testament to the strong camp that Jonathan Goff is having for the Giants. If anything this is more of a statement against Clint Sintim and his play up until this point. Bulluck is a versatile linebacker that can play both the middle and outside; Sintim is trying to find his way and Coughlin comments sort of allude to that…  

The head coach said Sintim played better on Saturday and praised the way he attacked the line of scrimmage.   

But Coughlin said Bulluck could provide Sintim with competition at outside linebacker.   

“The competitive aspect of it… the way we have gone all camp, if that creates a little bit of competition over there, then so be it,” Coughlin said. – via Ohm Youngmisuk   

Bulluck saw his first game action since suffering the ACL tear and was able to make his presence known during his 6 snaps when he stuck the running back. Hopefully the number of snaps he will play will increase versus the Ravens, but all in all it was a good start. One thing for sure is that Keith will not be satisfied with just providing competition for others, as he has stated in the past he would not have put in all the rehab work if he didn’t think he could play at or near the same level before the injury. Right now the only spot amongst the linebackers solidified is Michael Boley’s; at the end of day Bulluck will definitely be the other starting linebacker. I think we will see Bulluck moved around by Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell similar to how Bulluck was used with the Titans.  

When asked if he still considers Bulluck a middle linebacker, Coughlin said, “I consider him a linebacker.” – via Ohm Youngmisuk   

It’s up to Sintim and Goff to see who will be the 3rd starting linebacker; if they don’t step up be prepared to see Bulluck playing both middle and outside.
