Video: Larry Fitzgerald Minny camp, making appearances, giving back

Ho hum. Just another set of good things by the superstar.

We all know that Larry Fitzgerald is hosting pre-training camp workouts in Minnesota. Many of his teammates are there. But that isn't all he is doing. As part of the superstar persona, he also spends his free time and offdays giving back to the community and making public appearances.

Some people call that simply paying the price for his celebrity status and that, as a rich man and as a representative of a rich organization, he is more or less obligated to do so. Now, to put that in perspective, how many of us are willing to spend a good chunk or our free time and a chunk of our hard earned money for people other than our immediate family?

It's a hard thing to do, so while it is commonplace for him and other professional athletes, it does not diminish just how great a thing it is.

He is putting in extra hours at his job. He is helping his coworkers to do better.

The lead video shows that.

Additionally, in the videos that follow, he is seen signing autographs, promoting parks and an active lifestyle and inspiring people to action.

Likewise, in a related article, he has teamed up with Riddel to donate 1000 football helmets to youth football players in Minnesota.

We get him back here in Arizona soon enough. He reports in a couple of weeks.
