Pat Tillman's death remembered 10 years later
The former Arizona State University standout, who led the Sun Devils to the Rose Bowl, had an interview with the Cardinals the day after 9/11, saying how much he respected those who served in the military.
Tillman left the NFL soon after to join the Army. He officially enlisted in 2002.
He was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan at the age of 27 but that fact wouldn't come out immediately. At the time, the Bush administration said Tillman had been killed by Taliban fighters.
On Saturday, Tillman's widow, her new husband and tens of thousands of people will take part in the 10th Annual Pat's Run to benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation scholarship program.
During his time at ASU, Tillman was the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year. He also graduated in less than four years with a degree in marketing while maintaining a 3.85 GPA. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010.
