DUCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Former New York Giants star George Martin, who led Big Blue to victory in Super Bowl XXI, returned to Poughkeepsie on Wednesday to speak to the Dutchess County Department of Community & Family Services staff, inspiring them with his story of being raised the son of a sharecropper and working his way to become an NFL champion.

Duchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and DCFS Commissioner Sabrina Jaar Marzouka helped introduce the former defensive end. The event at the Changepoint Theatre in Poughkeepsie was made possible in cooperation with the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and was sponsored by MidHudson Regional Hospital.
