Professional careerEdit

National Football League (2000 - 2001)Edit

Larrimore was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft. He played for the Cowboys for two seasons, appearing in 19 regular season games (15 in 2000, four in 2001), before being released. In 2001, he was suspended for the final preseason game and the first regular season game and fined for missing curfew when the Cowboys traveled to Mexico City to play the Oakland Raiders in the American Bowl. Reports later surfaced that Larrimore had been fined at least 11 other times for various reasons.[1]

Arena Football League (2002 - 2004)Edit

After being released by the Cowboys, he was then signed by the Dallas Desperados of the Arena Football League where he played for two seasons. In 2002, as a rookie, he played in nine games for the Desperados, earning the position as the team’s top kick returner and defensive specialist. In 2003, knee and back injuries limited him to seven games, but he recorded 26.5 tackles, two interceptions and four passes broken up. He was selected by the expansion Austin Wranglers in the league's expansion draft, but later traded to the Chicago Rush for Cedric Walker.[2]

Later careerEdit

After three seasons in the Arena Football League, Larrimore signed with the Amarillo Dusters, then of the Intense Football League, on May 28, 2004.[3]

In 2009 Larrimore played with the Inglewood Blackhawks of the LCFL West Semi pro league.
