Panther Flashback: Larry Fitzgerald Making Amazing Catches During Spring Practice



Pitt / NFL wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

The football coaches over at Pitt have some unexpected free time on their hands as the sports world is on hold due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

During this off-time, a member of the football department found some video that will put a smile on the faces of many Pitt fans.

Video of former Pitt great Larry Fitzgerald making spectacular catches for the Panthers isn’t hard to find but seeing video of him doing it in practice it something that not many people have ever seen.

Today, head coach Pat Narduzzi tweeted out some video which shows that Fitzgerald’s greatness started with what he was able to do on the practice fields on the South Side.

Fitzgerald only played two seasons at Pitt but during that time, he was one of the most dominant players in college football. During his sophomore season in 2003, when he probably should’ve been awarded the Heisman Trophy, Fitzgerald caught 92 passes for 1,672 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Although he was runner-up to Jason White for Heisman, Fitzgerald did win the Walter Camp Award (best player in the NCAA) and the Biletnikoff Award (best wide receiver in college football).

No question he was robbed of the Heisman. The ONLY reason Jason White won is because he was the QB of the number 1 team. That’s it.
