Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald recently spent time playing games with a 12-year old boy
A 12-year old boy named Caleb got to spend a day with Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald recently. They played games at a local Dave and Busters.
The media was all over this, so you probably already know this happened. But this is just another example of why Fitz is as special off the field as he is on. He is a true Hall of Famer in and out.
Caleb had lost his mother last year and he himself has a rare disease. Fitz spent a day without anyone else but Caleb around at the Dave and Busters. For Caleb, it had to be a dream come true. Video from the fun confirms that’s the case.
This is part of why Cardinals fans want to continue to see him play for the team for as long as he can. Sure, he will likely continue to do great things in the community for years after his football career has ended.
However right now he does all of this as a representative of the Cardinals organization. It is a no-brainer for the Cardinals to continue to want him in the fold instead of trading him. Plus Fitz loves it here.
Now once he retires, he could leave the community and maybe move back home to Minnesota or elsewhere. Another reason to want Fitz to stick around.
Forget all the milestones he has achieved and yet to achieve. Fitz is a stand up man who comes from a stand up family.
It always touches the heart whenever Fitz reaches out to the community to help like this. Remember recently he helped a restaurant owner bring in business in Scottsdale? He never has too much on his plate to help out the community.
With all of his money, it could be easy to just disappear for awhile when it is the offseason. Not Fitz. His only regret in this case with Caleb? He said that he had to miss school to be with him. Classic Fitz.
