PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Arizona Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell crashed a Boys and Girls Club youth flag football practice near 40th Street and the Loop 202 on Wednesday. “I’m a big believer in sports and being active not just as kids but adults, I’m active everyday,” said Goodell.
Fitzgerald told the kids about the lessons sports have taught him and how it’s applied to his life. “When life knocks you down, you get back up,” said Fitzgerald. The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee and the NFL donated $25,000 to this Boys and Girls Club flag football program that covers 275 boys and girls a year. “You’re going to be the proud beneficiary of a check worth $25,000 to make sure you guys can play flag football,” said Goodell.
