Hometown Hero: Nick Giorgio

Hometown Hero

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Nick Giorgio.

The former Cumberland All-Stater finished his Springfield College career with 12 tackles, including 4.5 for a loss, in the Pride’s 17-14 win over Maritime in the New England Bowl. 

His final line for this season included 82 tackles and 14 sacks, numbers that should earn him a second straight 1st Team All-American spot.

“He has a tremendous work ethic in the weight room, tremendous work ethic in the film room, he’s coachable, tremendous leadership qualities,” Pride head coach Mike Cerasuolo said. “Obviously a captain for us, part of our brotherhood council, so he is the total package.”

Nick is hoping his success earns him a professional opportunity next year.

“I’m definitely not done playing football,” Giorgio said. “I want to keep training and hopefully get a combine or get invited to a camp in the summer.”
