Former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich returned to the Bay State on Sunday as a member of the New York Giants and helped take down the Patriots. But he still took some time to catch up with NESN's Jayme Parker to talk about his transition to life in the NFL.
Herzlich, who overcame a rare form of bone cancer that forced him out of college action in 2009, continues to turn heads. Not only did he make the Giants roster this year, but he's making strides toward becoming an impact player in the NFL.
The former BC standout said Sunday that he sees a lot of similarities between his time in college and his time at the professional level, as he rarely has time for anything other than football. That's quite alright with the 24-year-old, though, as he called playing football the "best job in the world," stressing that it doesn't get any better.
