Hundreds of football fans will have a chance to meet the star wide receiver, famous for his salsa dance after a touchdown, when he comes to Queens Theatre in Flushing this Friday to promote his upcoming memoir.
Cruz’s memoir “Into the Blue” details the Paterson, NJ native's childhood and his eventual rise to fame.
Raised by a single mom, Cruz took karate at age seven before turning to football two years later, according to published reports.
The book talks about Cruz’s life, including being raised in a gritty neighborhood, his firefighter dad who committed suicide, his grandmother who taught him his signature salsa moves and his meteoric NFL rise.
The meet-and-greet session Friday begins with complimentary drinks at 1:30 p.m., followed by a discussion with Cruz at 2:30 p.m.
A printed copy of the registration form is needed for entry, which is on a first-come first-served basis.
Fans must pre-register by visiting http://www.timewarnercablevictorcruz.eventbrite.com.
Audience members will get an advance copy of “Into the Blue” while supplies last.
