Babylon’s Jake Carlock has turned his dream into a reality.

Following the 2019 NFL Draft, the Long Islander signed with his childhood favorite team, the New York Giants.

Carlock, who plays linebacker and long snapper, is now in the midst of fighting for a roster spot for the 2019-20 regular season.

“I never really thought I’d be in the position I always hoped,” he said. “But once you are there it is a little different.”

The 495 Podcast sat down with the LIU Post product to talk about his journey to the league. He also talks about his hometown, college playing days, and his interactions with star teammates like Eli Manning.
