Football, Alaska Icon Larry Csonka Still Going Strong
Our pal Larry Csonka, a Pro Football Hall of Famer who has found bliss in Alaska – we profiled him in a 2014 cover story – was profiled by the team he had his greatest football years with, the Miami Dolphins. Csonka continues to cheer for Miami and his vocal about his love for the ‘Fins on his Twitter feed:
It’s Throwback Thursday and I’m “runnin’ through the jungle” again. #TBT #Throwback #DraftDay #FinsUp pic.twitter.com/k2lYod6QST

Happy to see Jim Kiick at the #MiamiDolphins game yesterday. Shared a few laughs about days past. Also happy for the victory. As skinny as it was, still puts another in the Win column. #FinsUp #finsup pic.twitter.com/J2gW7C63HR

Here’s a bit of the latest Csonka feature about his love for Alaska on the Dolphins’ website:
While he takes time to take in Alaska’s natural wonders — the mountains, the forests, the islands, the wildlife — the former Dolphins fullback remains as active today as when he was busy plowing opposing defenders with his distinctive punishing style.
Csonka has his very own ZONK! Channel, which can be found on his website, and offers videos of his previous outdoors TV shows — “North to Alaska” and “Csonka Outdoors” — as well as a series of “Path to Perfection” videos where he discusses the Dolphins’ memorable 1972 season.
“Professionally, in football, I wouldn’t change anything. As far as getting to Alaska, I would have liked to have done it a little sooner. But I did it soon enough and I still enjoy coming up here five or six months of the year and making Alaska my home.”
So happy to see Larry living the good life in the Last Frontier.
