A graduate of Tulane University, Geoff Block formerly served as an executive with Wall Street’s Crown Growth Partners before founding the South Carolina-based investment firm RLB Squared LLC in 2013. When not working, Geoff Block enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the New York Giants.

The Giants overhauled its defensive backfield earlier this year by signing Michael Thomas, Curtis Riley, Teddy Williams, and B.W. Webb. In April, the team added durable cornerback William Gay to that list. A 5-foot-10, 183-pound native of Tallahassee, Florida, Gay played college football for the University of Louisville before being selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Since debuting the following season, the 33-year-old has played in 176 games in 11 seasons and compiled 573 tackles, 13 interceptions, 10 forced fumbles, and seven quarterback sacks.

Gay spent all but one of those 11 seasons with the Steelers. During the 2012 season, he played for the Arizona Cardinals and recorded a career-high three forced fumbles. The former Super Bowl champion played primarily as a backup last season, but still managed two forced fumbles and an interception.
