Summer Q&A: Robert Ayers talks Giant Pride by Dan Salomone (

"Ayers: My father was big on representing yourself well and he always told me when I am going on the field or whatever you do, whether it’s football or anything that isn’t athletic, whether it be a school or whatever you’re putting your name on and stamp on, you represent yourself. You represent your family. You represent your name, and to have that pride in yourself was instilled in me early and now that I am a part of a great organization and team and unit that has a rich tradition of playing good defense and good defensive linemen, it carries over to this. And I give a lot of credit to my dad and for teaching me those things at a young age. Now that I’m an adult and a grown man, it has carried over to a lot of things. So those early things that I learned carry and define me going forward."

He’ll have to learn how to understand that it’s not there and that there are things that will play tricks on his mind.”"
