Pitt will retire Larry Fitzgerald’s jersey this season


The Pittsburgh Panthers have announced plans to retire Larry Fitzgerald’s jersey during their ACC home opener against Florida State this season.

Fitzgerald only played two seasons at Pitt but is easily the school’s most notable alum, finishing as a very close runner-up in the 2003 Heisman Trophy race (which was eventually won by Oklahoma QB Jason White) and going on to become one of the most feared wide receivers in the NFL. He has been elected to seven Pro Bowls since being drafted third overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2004.
