Gian Paul Gonzalez

During the New York Giants’ 2011 Super Bowl run, much of their inspiration is attributed to Gian Paul Gonzalez (pronounced John Paul). Prior to the Giant’s Christmas Eve game with the NY Jets, Gonzalez delivered the now famous “ALL IN” rally cry message during the Giants’ chapel service and is now widely recognized as having inspired the New York Giants to their Super Bowl victory and was featured on ESPN on Super Bowl Sunday, and has had notable appearances on Fox News, ABC and CNN, as well as sharing the stage at leadership events with Damon John of ABC’s Shark Tank. He has traveled across the world as a motivational speaker from the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers, to the Army Cadets at West Point, United States Air Force, Anheuser-Busch, Sam’s Club,, PNC Bank, DSW Shoes, Aresnal FC of Barclay’s Premiere League as well as many other corporate, athletic, government agencies, and educational institutions.

Gian Paul Gonzalez is himself an inspiration. He was a former NCAA First Team All-American forward from Montclair State University scoring nearly 1,400 points in his 3 year career. Played in the NBA Summer League in 2007 and was offered a few professional basketball contracts, yet he turned them down in order to continue his work with at-risk youth.

Currently, Gian Paul is a international motivational speaker, Educator - Union City Board of Education, Founder and Executive Director of Hope + Future Foundation and Community Center, an organization dedicated to using athletics & physical fitness to share a message of hope and striving for excellence to the inner-city youth of Hudson County, NJ, and Independent Consultant - NY Giants Player Development.
