New York Giants safety Xavier McKinney was the guest speaker at the Iona Preparatory School’s annual Father-Son Breakfast attended by more than 230 people at the school on Sunday.
McKinney answered questions and signed autographs for those in attendance.
A 2020 second-round pick of the Giants, McKinney had 93 tackles and five interceptions in 2020 for the Giants. In two NFL seasons, he has 118 tackles and six interceptions. McKinney attended the University of Alabama and played football for coach Nick Saban.
The annual event began over 60 years ago. Former Giants owner and Iona Prep parent, the late Wellington T. Mara, had Giants attending the breakfast when his sons attended the event in the 1970s. His sons–John Mara, CEO and president of the Giants; Chris Mara, senior vice president of player personnel; and Frank Mara, vice president of community relations, all graduated from Inoa Prep in the 1970s.
