Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has been announced as the headliner for the Arizona Sports Awards event that’s happening this summer at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. This awards celebration will be honoring local student-athletes who have excelled this year and accomplished outstanding things while maintaining good grades too, and having Palmer there representing the state’s NFL team is going to make it extra special. The three-time Pro Bowl player will be taking part in a motivational Q&A with the kids as well as discuss and share some of his experiences from playing sports in high school himself. Aside from handing out athletic awards, there will also be a Unsung Hero of the Year Award, Courage Award, and a High Achiever of the year Award that will be given to dedicated people who have worked hard behind the scenes with the students.
The Fresno, California native was noticed in the seventh grade for having a remarkable sized arm and arm strength for his age, so his dad immediately put him in private football classes in Orange County where he learned the ins and outs of being a quarterback. After a successful high school sports career, Palmer was given many field offers from universities around the country but ended up attending the University of Southern California where he played for head coach Paul Hackett for the initial three years of his college career. He entered the 2003 NFL Draft and was selected as the first overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals. The 2002 Heisman Trophy winner stuck with them for eight years before going to the Oakland Raiders for two seasons, and eventually ended up on the Arizona Cardinals’ roster in 2013.
Palmer will be in Phoenix this June to participate in the Arizona Sports Awards ceremony at the Orpheum Theater, and locals are excited to have a chance to interact with their very own NFL quarterback.
