Since 2013, Kevin Martoken has served as a fund accountant with Grassi & Co in New York City. Prior to his role there, he spent time with Ryan Associates and the Avenue Capital Group. Outside his professional life, Kevin Martoken follows New York sports teams, and is a fan of the Giants.
In a league in which his last name has been at the forefront of the quarterback conversation for the last two decades, Giants quarterback Eli Manning now finds himself in a role he’s never had before: being the only Manning in a football uniform.
He appears to be embracing the challenge, and in a recent interview with the New York Post, Manning says he’s more motivated than ever to get his team back to the Super Bowl.
Manning used the metaphor of not having eaten for four years when asked about the team’s playoff woes since winning the Super Bowl in 2011. He then went on to say that he was “hungry” and looked forward to getting back on the field and working hard.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP had a strong year in 2015, throwing for 35 touchdowns on 4,443 yards passing and boasting a 93.6 quarterback rating.
With a healthy Victor Cruz back in the fold, Giants receiver Odell Beckham not only believes Manning will have another strong year, but that his quarterback will likely be in the MVP conversation as well.
