Larry Fitzgerald Speaks in Beckley

317

The Big Atlantic Classic is just one day away, but the festivities kicked off Sunday with the Tip-Off Banquet at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.  The banquet typically features a high profile keynote speaker, and thanks to an undisclosed injury that kept him out of the pro bowl, Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals was on hand to the delight of many.

Fitzgerald, who led the league in receptions this past season and has the third most receptions in NFL history, spoke to the crowd of players, coaches, and officials about his journey to becoming one of the best football players of his generation.  While he was always a talented athlete, Fitzgerald spoke about the emphasis his parents placed on education and being a good person who makes good decisions.
