According to an NFL press release, the award is given each year to the NFL player who best displays the qualities of on-field sportsmanship, including fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition. A group of former NFL players selected the finalists.
The award was created in 2014 to honor the late Art Rooney Sr, the founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Best of luck, Maxx and it’s well deserved.
