Amukamara says he hasn’t had alcohol or sex

Prince Amukamara AP

At the time of the videotaped cold tub incident from training camp last year, Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara seemed a bit removed from some of his teammates.

Now we know he’s very different from many, if not most or all of them.

Amukamara said in a Q and A with Muscle and Fitness magazine that he’s yet to have his first taste of alcohol, and remains a virgin.

(There was a lot of other stuff in there too, like how much he could squat and what he eats before a workout. But we’re all adults here, let’s not kid ourselves.)

Amukamara said he might have a drink someday at his bachelor party, but made a conscious decision as a youth to abstain from alcohol.

“I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things. I’d think, ‘If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven,’ so I said no drinks, no sex, all the big things,” Amukamara said. “As I grew up, I realized that’s not what it’s about. It’s about having a relationship with Jesus. It’s not about ‘Don’t do this. Don’t do that.’

“But still, it’s just one of those things I haven’t done, and I don’t see any benefit to doing it. You’re always reading about people getting DUIs. So many bad things that happen and wind up in the paper are alcohol-related, so by not drinking, it saves me, my team, and my family a lot of trouble.”

Amukamara joked that some people call him “the black Tim Tebow,” but discussed his choices with no shame. He’s engaged, and said he was hesitant to tell his fiance he was a football player at all.

While his lifestyle choices will make him ripe for mockery by some (the same way A.C. Green became a punchline for declaring himself a virgin during his NBA career), Amukamara’s choices aren’t easy ones.

But the challenging and impressive part might be the fact he hasn’t made a spectacle of himself by putting them on parade already.

    Bless the principled man who doesn’t give in to modern pressures and has the fortitude to ignore what goes on around him.

    But I can’t help but think he may loosen up his hips a little after he gets married.

    I like this lifestyle choice, particularly abstaining from alcohol, not really interested in his sexual lifestyle choices. Alcohol is nothing more than poison in a bottle and it’s never going to help you win a football game and can only weaken your game. So if you want to be the best and you want to have an edge, then this is one fine way to do that and in a super healthy way. Good for him. It’s an extremely wise choice.

  10. emoney826 says: Sep 19, 2013 1:47 PM

    Jesus had nothing against drinking. He turned water into wine to get a wedding reception drunk. As for sex, you’d have to ask Mary Magdeline.

  13. bucrightoff says: Sep 19, 2013 1:49 PM

    Good for him, live your life as an individual and not what society expects you to be.

    Straight Up Respect for this guy. So hard to avoid all the distractions in world today, there is sex and alcohol advertised almost everywhere. I may not want to make the same choices but I can respect a person for those choices and would rather have my kid looking up to him the 90% of the other players in the league.

    Now all the fans will ostracize him, while not even remotely refraining from shaking our heads at the kids in the league who drink and have risky lifestyles.

    Alchohol and sex kind of go together in high school and college, so if he avoided one he probably missed on the other, not surprisingly.

    I mean it is his choice but I have to wonder if it would actually help the guy. your perspective changes when you become a man, he in a way, hasn’t done that yet.

  40. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Sep 19, 2013 2:06 PM

    I have yet to hear of anyone abstaining from alcohol or sex outside of marriage that has regretted that choice, but I’ve heard plenty of the opposite.

  41. sirhulka says: Sep 19, 2013 2:06 PM

    Regardless of religious views or whether or not I agree with his choices, which I don’t, I can’t help but to admire his discipline. Put a brew or a hot chick in front of me, I’d have an extremely hard time saying no. So, kudos to this guy.

    He would never survive as a Viking fan, the female segment needs plenty of alcohol just to have sex, like-wise for the males for those who have never seen the chubbies up in the Twin Cities, and then add in some more just to be able to watch that sorry franchise.

    Prince’ revelation begs the question…..did he fall in the draft because of his skill level or because he was not perceived as the stereotypical c-strong, Richard Sherman-type CB you see in the league today??

    People calling him a bust are off base. Sure, he didn’t light the league on fire in his first 2 years. However, lately, he really is developing into a top tier CB.

    Outside of it perhaps being a little surprising that someone who has taken part in an over-the-top-testosterone driven culture for the majority of their life not having had sex, I have to say I don’t really care. I’m not interested in athletes sex lives, or lack thereof. Unless we are talking about Lolo Jones. Then I’m all ears.

    There is a common sense reason for wine in the time of Jesus…Mainly that safe drinking water was not always at their fingertips as is the case in most nations in the modern era. It is good for you in moderation but here in the USA most people drink in party mode and get drunk.

    Two things will never happen to this young man if he stays true to what he believes.

    He will never have a DUI
    He will never have any type of STD if he marries a woman that shares his beliefs.

  61. ttommytom says: Sep 19, 2013 2:28 PM

    Prince is NOT a bust.

    Corey Webster was way worse until the light went on during 2007. Without Webster, Coughlin is long gone.

    As for Prince, same thing. As he gets better so do the Giants chances. You can’t win in this league without 2 ‘very good’ corners and 2′ good’ ones…

  62. CKL says: Sep 19, 2013 2:29 PM

    RGIII said recently he’s never had a drop of alcohol either.

    I guess the cold tub incident can now be explained as JPP baptizing Amukamara? :D

  63. metalhead65 says: Sep 19, 2013 2:29 PM

    so standing up for your beliefs like Tebow does is making a mockery of himself? I would say getting busted for DUI’S and beating your woman or having multiple kids by different women is more of a spectacle than saying this is what I believe in and living it is. you may not agree with it but there is nothing phony about it. good for this guy for living his life the way he does and it was his choice not to share it with anyone before now and that’s fine. but why the constant need to bash Tebow over it? most people have no idea who this guy is but everyone knows who Tebow is and he uses that to try and spread his faith and beliefs,what is so wrong about that?you do not have to share his view but he does have the right to express it. I wonder if you would be so vicious in your in insults and constant harassment of Tebow if he were muslim and sharing his message? deny all you want but we both know the answer to that is NO.

    Abstinence is the most unnatural thing I’ve ever seen in my life. We are literally THE animal that practices it. No other one does. It’s foolish and creates stigma. We need to educate and remove the stigmas surrounding sex.

    And it’s a rule book. A rule book full of hate, anger, greed, mass murder, forced killing of children, slavery, beating of women….you name it.

    A good source of morality it is not. Unless you skip the bad parts like everyone else. Just have a personal relationship with Jesus and say you’re sorry…ALOT.

    Really? It’s called communion wine for a reason. You know, because it’s wine. Or are you seriously suggesting that transubstantiation is real and Catholics are, in fact, drinking blood and eating human flesh when you partake of the Eucharist/communion?

    To the people that disliked my comment of tebow don’t be angry at my comment be angry at the man who preaches how he’s a virgin and doesn’t drink but used to go out get hammered and bang multiple women all the time. That’s what is called in the English language a fraud. I’m not faulting his choices. I’d drink and plow all day every day. I CAN however fault him lying and pretending he’s something he’s not.

    I myself played high level football, and have never had a kick of alcohol, it’s actually almost uncomfortable for me to tell people I don’t drink. You’d think I’d be the odd ball out and maybe make the party feel uncomfortable, well that’s not happening. I figure my natural add takes over give me a couple red bulls (0-0-0) and I’m good hyper and acting as if I was the drunk one. Never have hangovers and alway get home safe and dd all my boys.

    But it actually is more weird for me to admit I choose not drink and never have. People instantly identify me as a ” square ” or think I’m their to judge or that I myself put myself on a pedestal, none of which are further from the truth. I can identify with prince right their, usually we just want to keep it a secret.

    Now with regards to some women. Lol haha we I have been known to collect a few prospects, not my proudest moment, but maybe he needs a relationship with woman and it will keep this guy off the pup.

    metalhead65:

    I think you’re missing the point. I would suggest that most people on these boards don’t like Tebow because he rubs his religion in everyone’s face. I’m an atheist, but I admire Amukamara nonetheless because he keeps his mouth shut about it and, when asked, doesn’t try and proselytize. Tebow? It’s one speech after another, the genuflecting, the commercials. He’s constantly blaring that “his way” is the ONLY way. That is what rubs people the wrong way. I have never pushed my beliefs on anyone else as it is none of my business.

    Maybe he and Tebow will come out of the closet to together and start dating. They both have denying themselves any pleasure as something to bond over.

    It’s laughable to hear people like you mock a guy like this. This kid is probably an ideal citizen in society. Unlike a religiously militant atheist like yourself.

    Hopefully, his fiance says doesn’t tell hkm, “oh, we were supposed to wait for marriage?”

    Chris Kluwe needs to set this kids mind straight!

  114. nananatman says: Sep 19, 2013 5:51 PM

    Good for you dude! Focus on the job and that any hater is just bitter at making those easy decisions that can’t be undone.

    What an oddity. A righteous man.

    well we know he didn’t go to oklahoma state!

    No one will dare mock him like they do Tebow, and we all know why

    No wonder he sucks.

  119. ecupatsfan12 says: Sep 19, 2013 6:03 PM

    The alcohol is a little surprising. Catholics are taught to wait till marriage. Im waiting until Im engaged or serious. Different strokes for different folks. His life. Personally I think alcohol is fine but im not him.

    A lot of us had friends at Florida in tebows days. In fact I had one in the team (who dressed but never played) your comments would be laughable if they weren’t so desperate and sad. I don’t care what you think about him, his life, his religion, or whatever. Just don’t be petty and pathetic on a message board about a man neither one of us has met. I feel dirty just getting dragged into this base level discussion but I guess I’m just as pitiful as the rest of the people so passionate about whether a kid is drinking or having sex.

  122. essentialsausage says: Sep 19, 2013 6:18 PM

    It’s unfair to call him the black Tim Tebow. Amukamara can probably throw a football much better than Tebow.

  123. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 19, 2013 6:20 PM

    Prince has been asking girls to join him in the cold tub for a warm beer. That never works.

  124. rokusaburo says: Sep 19, 2013 6:25 PM

    So where are the throngs of supporters for this guy? He’s even more righteous than Tebow, but you don’t hear people saying that Amukamara has been held back by some nefarious Christian persecuting media or some other nonsense.

    This, to me, proves that all along, people only liked Tebow not for his morals or good character as they claim, but for two reasons:

    1) He’s Evangelical

    2) He’s White

  125. kev86 says: Sep 19, 2013 6:43 PM

    Lucky father-in-law. For the alcoholics bashing him – misery likes company and Prince doesn’t want and/or need yours.

  126. bleedburgandyandgold says: Sep 19, 2013 7:00 PM

    I have lots of respect for this kid It takes a special kinda person not to give in to carnal urges I know I couldn’t do it drinking on the other hand the world would be a better place without all the drunks of course the world would be a better place without all the ppl to lol

  127. vaughnjoe says: Sep 19, 2013 7:18 PM

    This is a good kid. Respect!

  128. metalhead65 says: Sep 19, 2013 7:45 PM

    rokusaburo- where has he been all these years expressing his faith and views and opening himself to scorn and ridicule like Tebow has? just because he is black has nothing to do with it. the fact he chose to live that lifestyle without sharing it is the reason he does not have throngs of supporters.

  129. fdugrad says: Sep 19, 2013 7:51 PM

    Nothing to see here folks, move it along…

  130. jc327 says: Sep 19, 2013 7:57 PM

    I haven’t either. Not today, anyhow.

  131. jlv3gem says: Sep 19, 2013 8:21 PM

    Maybe Prince Amukamara and Tim Tebow can just go jerk each other off. I’m sure Jaguars fans would love to see that.

    Why are the anti-religious folks always so very interested in religious people’s sex lives???

    —————————————-

    As opposed to the churches that are so very interested in EVERYONE’S sex lives?!

  133. patriots420 says: Sep 20, 2013 10:06 PM

    I don’t have a bad word to say about this guy, not saying I want to go back in time and make those decisions myself, but I think I would be totally different person. Maybe more focused to be an archeologist instead of a lowly history teacher.

    Tebow could definitely take a course full of lessons from this guy on how to be spiritual without cramming it in everyone’s face. Well I guess Catholosism has different teachings than the southern baptist sect.

    Those are not choices I would make. But I respect his discipline.

    Finally. This is the only valid comment in this entire message section.

    “What a commendable young man/I’d love to see more guys like this”

    - No, he has lived up to your particular set of values– this is not a universally recognized “what a great guy” thing to do, like donating a year’s salary to Breast cancer research or driving 100 miles to spend an afternoon with a terminally ill child, or just leaving your number when you hit a parked car. This is your and Amukamara’s interpretation of what is right.

    “What is wrong with him!?/Religious people are all crazy!”
    See above– exact same applies to you.

    Point is, the one indisputable universal value/” good thing to do” Amukamara has followed through on is staying true to himself in the face of tremendous cultural and societal pressure. His determination in making these unquestionably difficult choices is something that you have to respect, whatever your personal values.

    The second point being that Amukamara is living his life this way quietly and discreetly, so taking the values he has reservedly expressed and using them to attack others is kind of insulting to Prince himself. And for those on the other side, how does this bother you? He’s not evangelizing, he’s not attacking you, and he’s one less professional athlete to compete with in the worldwide dating pool. Amukamara’s decisions are just that: Amukamara’s. You don’t have to agree with him, but you should respect him for making those difficult decisions and sticking to his guns– How many of us have the same level of discipline and restraint?

    I don’t always drink beer but when I do I like to have sex! Stay thirsty my friend.

  136. sm407240 says: Sep 26, 2013 5:10 PM

    I can respect his discipline although I don’t agree with his choices. It’s a shame that this is the only life he will have and that theres a lot to enjoy and experience that he is forsaking . At least he isn’t preaching.
