NFL RUSH
New Kid Reporter Alyssa's Favorite Player

The crowd in the University of Phoenix Stadium goes wild all because of the touchdown catch by Larry Fitzgerald. My favorite NFL player is Larry Fitzgerald because he made my favorite team very famous. He also took the AZ Cardinals to there first Super Bowl. He has more than 1,000 receiving yards in the past 5 seasons. He was the leader of the NFC west in receiving yards in 2008. He also was all pro in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011.

 

For college he went to University of Pittsburgh where he played for the Pittsburgh Panthers. He was considered one of the best wide receivers in college football from 2002 to 2003. He was recognized as the best player in the NCAA with the 2003 Walter Camp Award and the Touchdown Club of Columbus's Chic Harley Award. In just 26 games with the Panthers, Fitzgerald caught 161 passes for 2,677 yards.

 

Fitzgerald was drafted third overall in the 2004 NFL Draft by the AZ cardinals, whose then coach, Dennis Green, knew Fitzgerald from his time as a Vikings ball boy. In 2004, Fitzgerald had 58 receptions for 780 yards and 8 touchdowns. On December 12, 2004, Fitzgerald became the youngest player at 21 years and 110 days, to record at least 2 touchdown receptions in a single game.

 

This year he has 71 receptions for 798 yards. They started the season wining 4 games, but then losing 9 straight. Week 15 the AZ Cardinals beat the Lions (10-38) breaking the streak, but then lost the last 2 games of the season. They finished the season 5-11.

 

Now you know my favorite player in the NFL and why.
