Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has written a moving tribute to his friend, Sen. John McCain, who is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer.

“We’ve become friends since I’ve been playing for the Cardinals,” Fitgerald writes for Sports Illustrated’s website. “I have so much admiration for him, and I wanted to share why that admiration has become so strong.”

Fitzgerald, widely considered a shoo-in for the NFL Hall of Fame after he retires, insists that he’s “not much of a political guy.” However, he admires McCain for serving his country during the Vietnam War and how he “votes his conscience.”
