Eagles nominate Jason Kelce for 2021 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award
After all of his incredible charitable acts, the Philadelphia Eagles have nominated Jason Kelce for the 2021 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. The award is given to a player who has given back to his community or city through volunteering or charity work. Last year’s nominee was safety Rodney McLeod.
Some of Kelce’s incredible charitable contributions include helping raise over $100,000 for the Eagles’ Autism Foundation through bartending down the shore. Jason Kelce has also volunteered his time at a variety of organizations, including the Eagles Charitable Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Bringing Hope Home , and Liberty USO.
“To be named the Eagles’ Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year is an incredible honor. I’ve been blessed to come to work every day for the past 11 years doing what I love for a team and city that means the world to me. The Eagles organization is family and this city is home. It’s a humbling experience to be recognized alongside men around the league who are making a difference in their communities.” – Jason Kelce
What Kelce has been able to do for this city both on and off the football field is incredible and very selfless. Every NFL team gets one nomination with the winner next year on February 10th, with Super Bowl 56 just three days later on the 13th. Congratulations again to Jason Kelce and make sure to get your votes in on Twitter!
