Hurts, 24, was the MVP runner-up last season, throwing for 3,701 yards, 22 TDs, and 6 INTs while rushing for 760 yards and 13 TDs — one shy of the single-season record. Hurts’ stellar campaign led the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance and earned him a five-year, $255M contract extension with the franchise.
LSU star Angel Reese was named BET’s Sportswoman of the Year.
