Larry English is an ex American football player who made his career in the NFL league and is known today as a reality TV star in a reality series „WAGS“. He is a well-known TV person know which helped him get a much larger fanbase.
He has spent most of his career in San Diego Chargers, is one of the most respectable players with high work ethics. This was a really big point in his life!
He was born as Larry English on January 22, 1986, in the town of Aurora in Illinois, United States. He was always very thankful for the fact that he was born in The United States because this gave him a lot of opportunities. He probably would not have met many people that he did.
He has been suffering from asthma since he was just a little kid but had coped it pretty well with the help of his father Larry English Sr. and his mother Susan who were very loving parents. He said that without the support of his parents, he would probably let his illness get in the way of him creating a big career.
He was especially monitored because of his asthma issues so he was rarely alone.
His parents realized that he loved football more than anything so they let him train it. Later it was shown that the sport helped a lot with his asthma problems.
He was a student at Aurora Marmion Academy high school where he was a very important player of the high school’s football team.
Larry was named as the team’s most valuable player several times and was a co-captain of the team which was a big deal for him.
He played in two positions: as an inside linebacker and also as a running back.
Other than football which he adored he was also very good at basketball and track. That is why he competed in the school’s basketball team and track team but he was not as good as in football.
After he finished high school he had enrolled the Northern Illinois College but has been injured in the very first game for his new college team. This made him spent most of his first season on the bench, recovering from his undesired injury.
His next season was better and he managed to play in eleven games through the season. He tried to force himself to play better and this eventually caused him a bunch of stress, but he did manage to end the whole thing by working with his best coach who was a big support to him.
The 2006 season became his high improvement season where he played in almost all games and made the great number of tackles. Obviously, the coaching technique worked really well.
It was in 2007 that Larry was named as the Most Valuable Player for the Mid- American Conference. This showed how much he improved in this season. This was such a big thing for him, he was very proud of it!
In the 2008 season, he has managed to win the Vern Smith Award. He was also the Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year. It was the 3rd season that he was an All-Mac Choice of all the judges.
Larry has been drafted by the San Diego Chargers after he joined the 2009 NFL Draft.
He had the 9th highest score as a linebacker in his Draft Class. It was determined that he had 128 IQ which is above average.
He was outstanding at his Wonderlic test where he scored 34. This was a really good push.
He became the outside linebacker for the team. He was very happy
In 2010 he sustained a foot fracture and recovered for a month.
He struggled with his injury and under average play for the next few seasons so he was ultimately released from his team in the summer of 2014.
Larry became a player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. He left the team year later, in 2015 after making 12 appearances for the Buccaneers.
He retired from football after that and continued with other ventures. He decided that it might be better for his physical and mental state.
Since Larry struggled with his lung disease- asthma from his early days he has become the chairman of San Diego’s Fight For Air Climb event run by the American Lung Association, in 2011.
In 2017 he appeared in a video game named „Madden NFL 18“.
He loves his wife Nicole very much and she is his great supporter. He bought her a $250 000 worth ring specially designed for her by Ritani, a very known jeweler.
Before Nicole, he was in a relationship with Metisha Schaefer and was invited to one WAGS episode. Metisha spoke very ugly about Larry, calling him a cheater.
„WAGS“ stands for „Wives and Girlfriends“ and it is meant on athlete’s wives. It is aired on E!
He has a sister who is a specialist in Respiratory Therapy.
In 2016 he has sold his house in Hollywood for over $3 million and he also sold one of his properties in Santaluz for nearly $1 million.

Larry English, the outside linebacker for the San Diego Chargers, has been helping student-athletes for years, ever since he became a player for the Chargers.
His mother Susan helped him start his own foundation named “The L.E.A.D Foundation” which was focused on empowering youth.
Larry wanted to make sure the kids get the best education and enabling them to pursue their dream. The dream is not only connected to sports but to academics too.

The students were thrilled to get the chance to workout with famous NFL players who showed them how to tackle accurately and safely. They spoke about work ethics and how to become a responsible player.
Larry English stated that he wanted to be a positive role model and help the kids in making a career for themselves.
Since it is a free camp kids only have to register in it and after that, they can learn the basics of the game.
He is proud of the fact that they are free since he wanted to go to the camp when he was a kid and just couldn’t afford to because of the family’s financial situation.
