Rich Ohrnberger Earns NY Giant Try-Out

The East Meadow High School graduate broke the news via Twitter on May 10.

Rich Ohrnberger, the graduate who by the New England Patriots in February, is getting a new opportunity with the New York Giants, according to his personal Twitter account.

"Checking in at mini-camp for a tryout with the NY Giants," Ohrnberger wrote. "Hopefully my rigorous off-season regime of hot yoga and calisthenics pays off."

It's been a rough go of it for Ohrnberger, 26, as he missed the entire 2012 season with a concussion. In February, Patriots' brass decided to cut the cord on the former East Meadow Jet.

Ohrnberger to be taken in the NFL Draft in 2009. When his phone rang during the fourth round, the New England Patriots proved Ohrnberger’s expectations wrong. Coach Bill Belichick welcomed Ohrnberger to the NFL, and his dreams of becoming a professional football player had come true.

“I was sitting in the living room with my family and some friends when the phone rang,” Ohrnberger said. “I can say, without doubt, that that was the happiest day of my life.”
