The greatest ballboy in Vikings history returns tonight, all grown up and ready to join the ranks of Randy Moss, Daunte Culpepper and other NFLplayers he used to serve on hot summer days as a young teenager in Mankato.
“To be honest, I just don’t want to embarrass myself,” said Larry Fitzgerald Jr., the former Holy Angels star, who will start at receiver for the Arizona Cardinals against the Vikings in a preseason opener at the Metrodome. “I just want to run the right routes and make the right reads. Would I like to score a touchdown? Yes, but I like to score touchdowns anywhere.”
