Former Smiths Station High School athlete Terrance Stringer signed a two-year contract with the Super Bowl champion New York Giants over the weekend.
Stringer, who played in the secondary at Tuskegee University for three of his four seasons, signed with the franchise as a free agent after going undrafted. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder is working out at free safety.
He was recruited to play quarterback by Tuskegee, but moved to defensive back after one season and contributed 108 tackles in his career. Stringer, who earned second-team all-conference honors as a senior, helped the Golden Tigers win 43 of 48 games and capture two Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles.
Tuskegee went 12-0 last season and won the Sheridan black college football national championship.
