Arizona Cardinals football player Larry Fitzgerald received a very special honor -- he was recognized for his work helping troubled teens around the state.
Fitzgerald is used to getting accolades for his work on the football field, but this time, it's his philanthropic work which is being recognized.
Teen Lifeline presented the all-pro wide receiver with the Alfredo J. Molina Community Lifeline Award for his tireless work helping at-risk teens in Arizona.
Fitzgerald created the First Down Fund -- a program geared toward funding positive activities for children throughout the year and he recently partnered with Teen Lifeline to continue helping kids around our state.
"Last year, I was able to learn about Teen Lifeline through my foundation. We donate to a lot of different organizations around the valley and Teen Lifeline was one of those and that was the first glimpse I got into it and now to be honored with an award means a tremendous amount to me," he said.
Fitzgerald's work doesn't stop here in Arizona -- he's also extended his charitable work internationally.
