Keith Fitzhugh loves his day job
Posted on December 8, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
That’s what you can say about who chose his job of conducting over a chance to play in the Super Bowl. Recently the free-agent who plays safety on the New York Jets said no thank you to an offer to play on the team. He wanted instead to remain at his job as a conductor for Norfolk Southern Railroad. He felt that by keeping that job he would be able to stay safe financially, as he helps to support his parents who live in Atlanta.
Knowing that he has a check coming in steady each two weeks is a big deal and well one that made quite a few people surprised. After all it’s not everyone who gets a shot to play as a professional football player. So many young boys grow up dreaming of their chance to shine beneath the lights and make it to that big game.
The chance came when Jim Leonhard got hurt last week and another safety became injured on the team as well. Now they are down to only two safeties on the roster and well they were hoping to have Fitzhugh join the team.
They contacted him on Tuesday because for the past two years he has been in camp and done a pretty good job. Really he made a decision that he feels is best for his family and that is to keep a steady job that he knows he will always get paid at. While playing in the NFL is a fabulous dream it may not continue to pay those bills for very long if something were to happen to him on the field.
A lot of it might be because in the past he has been released three different times. And well that may be just enough to let you know that playing in the NFL isn’t that easy. So why not
