One player from each NFL team will be honored as a 2010 Ed Block Courage Award winner. Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson is the Lions recipient of the award which will be presented at a banquet in Baltimore on March 8. Players from each team vote on the teammate that best exemplifies the characteristics of inspiration, sportsmanship, and courage.
This is not just another award that serves to boost the profile of a professional athlete. The award is administered by the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation and sponsorship proceeds support child abuse awareness.
Ed Block was a trainer for the Baltimore Colts and also a humanitarian. Read more about Jason Hanson and the award by clicking the thumbnail below:
