MAYWOOD, N.J. -- It's been an exciting summer for Justin Trattou of Maywood.
The NFL star, formerly of Franklin Lakes, was traded to the Buccaneers just after marrying Julianne Trattou earlier this summer.
On Monday, Trattou turns 29.
Trattou had been playing for the Minnesota Vikings after being signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
He's a state (Bosco), national (Florida), and Super Bowl (Giants) champ.
Trattou attended Don Bosco Preparatory High School in Ramsey, where he was named all-state during both his junior and senior years.
As a senior playing for Don Bosco Prep, he helped lead the team to a 12-1 record and a state title.
He accepted an athletic scholarship to play college football for the University of Florida. During his sophomore season, the Gators won a Southeastern Conference championship and the 2009 BCS National Championship Game.
