Larry FitzgeraldWhen it comes to top college football programs, the University of Oregon ranks among the best. The Ducks are routinely ranked in the top 5, have some of the most unbelievable athletes in the game, and have a great fan following, mostly due to their success on the field but also partly due to the fact that they sport a new stylish Nike uniform each week that everyone enjoys seeing. However, despite all their success the Ducks still long to bring home a national championship to Eugene.

As they prepared for the 2014 season this summer the Oregon coaches felt that their players needed a new perspective on how to approach success on the field and in their everyday lives, so in July they tapped Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to come provide some insight, and they got more than they bargained for.

The players left the room not only with a new perspective, but with a different attitude.

“Honestly, going into that meeting I was definitely a different person,” redshirt freshman receiver Darren Carrington said. “Coming out of that meeting it changed my whole mindset to getting where I want to get to and how I want to get there.”

With 10 NFL seasons under his belt, Larry Fitzgerald certainly understands that it takes to be successful in football. But, the wisdom he provided these young student-athletes went beyond the gridiron and hit them in every aspect of their lives.

“One of the things that stuck with me is that he said he’s multiple people,” outside linebacker Tyson Coleman said. “He’s a father as much as he is a player as much as he is a coach to his other teammates. That stuck with me a lot because he said he wants to be great at everything he does and that applies a lot to me, too. I haven’t really put my focus on school where it has been. That motivated me to do everything to the best of my ability and not let some areas slack off.”

It remains to be seen whether or not the wisdom Fitzgerald shared with the Ducks in July will translate to a national championship in January. But one thing’s for sure, Fitzgerald did open up some eyes and get the players thinking about a bigger picture, and perhaps a new dedication to greatness in all that they do will enhance their performance on the field.
