He lost his mother Carol in 2003; younger brother Marcus played wide receiver with Sacramento Mountain Lions before retiring from sports after two seasons due to injuries sustained during college wrestling season.

He attended the University of Pittsburgh and became one of college football’s top wide receivers in 2003, winning two prestigious awards, including the Walter Camp Award- the best player award given by NCAA officials.

At the age of 26 and with five NFL seasons under his belt, Larry Fitzgerald is already one of the most accomplished players in football. With a three-touchdown performance at last year’s NFC Championship Game, he tied an NFL record that Jerry Rice previously set.

Fitzgerald has managed to amass quite a list of achievements before turning 28, including being featured prominently on EA Sports NCAA Football 2005 video game cover art – just like another famous Pac 10 wide receiver from USC, Reggie Bush.
