Larry Fitzgerald was one of the top wide receivers in college during his time at Pitt, so it’s no surprise that it carried over to an NFL career that should lead to his enshrinement in Canton in the future. His 92 catches, 1,622 yards, and 22 touchdowns in 2003 made him a Heisman Trophy semifinalist, putting him on the verge of joining Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett as the program’s only Heisman winners.

Also up for the award were 2 quarterbacks: Oklahoma’s Jason White and Ole Miss’ Eli Manning. White ended up winning the trophy following a season where he threw for 3,846 yards and 40 touchdowns.

Manning, of course, went on to have a banner NFL career of his own, while White never broke through in the professional ranks. Fitzgerald and Manning sat down with each other during the latter’s ESPN+ series, “Eli’s Places”, where Fitzgerald shared his first thoughts when the 2 first met at the Heisman ceremony in New York.

“His hair looks good, but he has a really large head,” Fitzgerald joked.

“You’re telling someone they’re having a large head?” Manning laughed.

Manning then asked what Fitzgerald’s first thought was when hearing White’s name announced as the winner.

“Actually, the first thought was, ‘At least Eli didn’t win’,” he responded.

“That’s fair,” Manning replied.
