WOOD-RIDGE, N.J.– Wood-Ridge High School nominated senior middle linebacker/tackle Greg Carmona for USA Football's Heart of a Giant Week 1 award.

The award program, presented by Hospital for Special Surgery and the New York Giants, recognizes high school football players within the Tri-State area that demonstrate unparalleled work ethic and passion for the game, according to the USA Football website.

Coaches can nominate players for a chance to win a $5,000 equipment grant, according to USA Football.

"My most favorite part is the process," the 5-foot-10, 215-pound Carmona told USA Football. "I love to train and get better. When I'm in season I love the contact. I like to hit and be a physical player. The brotherhood is also a trait of the game that makes me love football. Football brings communities closer. The school’s reputation is on the line at every football game. The thrill is why I love to play the game.

Nominees are required to possess the following characteristics:

  • Commitment;
  • Teamwork;
  • Will;
  • Character;
  • Dedication.

"For me it’s the will to achieve a free college education," Carmona told USA Football. "It's what keeps me going. The will to make our football program a winning one keeps me going."
