Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald once again proved to local fans what a class act the man is
Many players you don’t hear much from once the season ends until the start of OTA’s. For Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, that is not the case.
On Saturday night, Fitz was out doing what Fitz does. He acts as a representative of the community. He could make a great politician one day.
State Farm Stadium, home to the Cardinals during training camp and the regular season, played host to not only one of the biggest Country music acts in the world but one of the biggest entertainment figures in the world.
Country star Garth Brooks brought his tour to the stadium in front of over 77,800 fans, a stadium record. Also there? That would be Fitz.
He came out on stage to present Brooks with his own Cardinals jersey with the number 1 on it. Brooks was wearing Fitz’s black number 11 jersey during the concert.
Fitz later put out a tweet that said he felt fortunate to partner with him with Teammates For Kids with the First Down Fund, which is Fitz’s charity. Fitz continues to show just how special he is to this community off the field.
Brooks is slated to have a new album drop this June titled “Fun”. Fun is what Fitz seems to be having these days prior to the start of OTA’s for the Cardinals.
Hopefully Kliff Kingsbury’s new offense will be fun for Fitz as well. It’s always great to see a smile on Fitz’s face like we saw Saturday night on stage. It’s on Sunday’s this fall we hope to see Fitz smiling.
Fitz knows he can still play and help the team win. It’s why he’s returning. He recently told nfl.com that he didn’t want to end his career on how 2018 played out. Who can blame him?
