A former linebacker for New York Giants and Washington Redskins, Lavar Arrington’s career had its highs and lows.
Laden with trophies during his time with the Pennsylvania State University, he became the overall second pick in the 2000 NFL drafts. However, Lavar's journey was cut short when he had to retire prematurely in 2006.
Now a family man, he's on the road to building a name for himself outside of football.
