comScore Annie Apple Reacts to Son's First Day of Training Camp

NFL Rookie’s Awesome Mom is ‘Gonna Need Lots Of Kleenex’ on Son’s First Day of Training Camp

CnTIyUWUkAMHXf0 Annie Apple — the mom of New York Giants rookie cornerback Eli Apple — is totally awesome. Her Twitter feed garnered attention after she defended her son against a scout who criticized him. But she was a breakout star on Draft night, so much so that she earned herself a spot on ESPN’s NFL Countdown pregame show this fall.

Today, Eli reported for his first day of NFL training camp. And mom is feeling pretty emotional about it.

Here’s hoping football camp goes as well for the Big Blue rookie as painting camp did for Pablo.
