Each team selects one player -- through a vote of his teammates -- who exemplifies courage on and off the field and serves as a role model to his team and community. The 30 players will be honored at the 21st annual Ed Block Courage Awards banquet ar Martin's West on March 9.
The event serves as a fund-raiser for the foundation, with proceeds benefiting the Courage House National Support Network of centers for abused children in eight NFL cities.
The award is named for Ed Block, longtime trainer of the Baltimore Colts, whose most passionate cause was abused children.
For further information on the Foundation, or to obtain tickets, contact Ron Healey or Tina Bressi at 410-821-6252.
