Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito reaping benefits of living in childhood home: ‘Everything is handled for me’

Tommy DeVito will make his first NFL start on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Once back in his tri-state area, he will head to his place of residence: his childhood home.

The 25-year-old grew up in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, about nine miles from MetLife Stadium. It takes just 12 minutes to get to the Meadowlands from his home.

He didn’t even have to make any major lifestyle changes, as he signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent earlier this year after spending five years at Syracuse and another year at Illinois. In fact, he lives his life as usual.

DeVito admitted that “everything is being processed” at home.

“I don’t have to worry about laundry or what I’m going to have for dinner. Chicken cutlets and everything is waiting for me when I get there. My mom still makes my bed. Everything is mine. To be honest, I don’t worry.”I don’t even know if I can find a place closer to here than where I live. It takes 12 minutes to get here. ”DeVito he told ESPN earlier this week..

DeVito said it’s “easy” to stay home now that he’s signed with the G-Men.

“Everything you need is at home. This decision was made because this level of football is stressful for a rookie, especially from a quarterback’s standpoint. There’s a lot going on, a lot of meetings. I mean, everything outside of football.”My family is in charge. ”

DeVito was a first-team all-state player at Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, New Jersey.

Aaron Rodgers bought a house in Cedar Grove shortly after being traded to the New York Jets, which is also the hometown of Cleveland Browns forward David Njoku.
