Tom Telesco Honored by New York State Senate

Posted Jan 28, 2014

General Manager Tom Telesco was honored by New York State Senate on Tuesday.


With the Super Bowl being held in the New York City region this week, football fever is taking over the entire Empire State.  As such, the New York State Senate honored native son Tom Telesco on Tuesday.  Jacksonville Jaguards GM David Caldwell was also honored.

Here is just some of what State Senator Timothy Kennedy had to say:

"As the nation’s eyes turn towards New York and the lead-up to this year’s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, I rise to honor two western New Yorkers who have worked their way to the top of their respective NFL franchises. Tom Telesco, a 1992 graduate of St. Francis High School was introduced last season as the general manager of the San Diego Chargers, while Dave Caldwell from St. Francis class of 1991 was hired as the general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The future is bright for these men and the franchises they lead. After Tom graduated from high school he went onto John Carroll University where he joined the football team as a wide receiver. He spent his summers interning for my hometown team and everyone’s only New York state team, the Buffalo Bills. Soon after Tom graduated he joined the Indianapolis Colts as a scout, eventually working his way up the ladder with the Colts highlighted by a 2006 Super Bowl victory.  In 2013 he was finally handed the reins to a team when he joined the Chargers. His success has been quick. This year the Chargers reached the AFC division round of the playoffs."
