The Legacy...NFL Quarterback - Gary Wood

For David and Eric Wood, excellence is part of the family name. As second generation insurance experts, they learned from their father, NFL Quarterback, Gary Wood about dedication to greatness and never letting your team down.

Gary was drafted from Cornell University in the 1964 NFL draft by the NY Giants. He played 63 games with the NFL with a passer rating of 54.5%. After a successful career in football, Gary went on to open an insurance firm in NYC, and was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1996.
