If asked to name my favorite NFL player, it would be a very hard decision. As neutral as I am, I would have to go with wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals.

 

One reason that Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite player is that he is a franchise player. A franchise player is a player that general manager can build a team around. Larry Fitzgerald is a great player who is so talented that he can even make teammates better.

 

Another reason that Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite player is that he is unbelievably athletic. Fitzgerald can catch footballs that no other person on Earth can catch. Fitzgerald also has an amazing combination of speed, catching ability, and jumping ability. Fitzgerald was a big reason that the Cardinals reached the Super Bowl in 2009.

 

The third reason that Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite player is that he is a role model. On the field, Fitzgerald is not a ballhog and tries to open opportunities for other players to score. He also has integrity. In a game against the Eagles, Fitzgerald was called for a holding penalty that shortened an 80 yard touchdown to a 40 yard dash. Instead of a touchdown on that drive, the Cardinals were held to a field goal. Fitzgerald took full responsibility, even though the Cardinals won the game 24-6.

 

Also, Larry Fitzgerald is a role model off the field. Fitzgerald has his own charity that helps those in need. He also supports cancer awareness.

 

If I was the general manager of a NFL team, an owner of a fantasy football team, or a kid looking for a role model, my number one pick would be Larry Fitzgerald.
